In a similar note, Obi also offered his condolences to the families of those affected in the accident that took place at Upper Iweka, Onitsha.

Quoting Don John,   Obi  said that the tragic incident in Lagos and Onitsha,  like the recent crash of  an  Ethiopian Aircraft, should  elicit  the compassion  and concern  of  everyone, because  “we are all part of humanity.”

He  expressed worry at the continued incidence of collapsed buildings  across the country  and  called on relevant agencies and organizations to double their efforts towards seeking final solution to the menace.

Obi  prayed to Almighty  God to grant the souls of the  dead  eternal  repose;  urging  public authorities at all tiers  to take the issue of mass housing seriously to avoid  Nigerian  citizens taking  up accommodation  in uncompleted buildings.
