A message of condolence from His Majesty The King to the President of Nigeria

Published 21 October 2022

I know that the United Kingdom stands in solidarity with Nigeria as you recover from these truly terrible events. 

Your Excellency, Dear Mr President,

I wanted you to know how deeply saddened both my wife and I are to hear of the many people who have lost their loved ones and whose lives have been so dreadfully affected as a consequence of the devastating floods across Nigeria. 

We remember with the greatest affection our visits to Nigeria and the kindness of the people we met.

However inadequate this may be under such tragic circumstances, our most heartfelt sympathy is with all those who have suffered so much, and our thoughts are with those working to support the recovery efforts. 

I know that the United Kingdom stands in solidarity with Nigeria as you recover from these truly terrible events. 

Charles R.
