The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Wednesday, condoled with the people and Government of Akwa Ibom over the church collapse and the loss of lives in the incidence.
Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, National Chairman of the party in a condolence letter to Gov. Emmanuel Udom of the state, said there was need for thanksgiving because the situation could have been worst.

The APC national chairman also prayed for the souls of those who lost their lives in the incidence to rest in peace and wished the injured quick recovery.
“Once more, please accept the deep sympathies of our party and be assured that our prayers and thoughts remain with you, the government and people of Akwa Ibom State,” Odigie-Oyegun said. (NAN)
