Follow Akwa Ibomites, Today we had an unfortunate incident which the roof of Reigners Bible Church Int’l, Uyo Collapse while service was going on.

I was present at the Church during the incident and share  in the agony  of the moment.

Therefore, I personally  supervised rescue operations and evacuation  of the  injured to the hospital .I directed  all emergency organizations, agencies of government  and cooperate organizations especially the construction companies to the involved in the exercise. They  acted promptly and I commend their sense of patriotism and gallantry.

The state Government will bear  the  medical  cost  of all those  injured,  we note  that  we have  had  such a shocking  incident  in the  history of our dear state. Government, I will therefore, set up a high – powered panel  of  inquiry  to ascertain the immediate and remote causes leading to the collapse of the building with a view to forestalling the recurrence of such incident and bring to book person found to have compromised professional standards  in the  constructions of the building.

We appeal to all citizen to remain calm, pray for the injured and avoid undue speculation as the situation is being given the best  possible attention.

On behalf of the Government of Akwa Ibom State, I commiserate with the families  of all the victims  of the  collapsed building.

We urge the Christian community  in prayers for the families  if the victims and the State
