Akwa Ibom State Governor, Udom Emmanuel, has confirmed he was inside Reigners Bible Church, when it collapsed on Saturday.

Emmanuel and his deputy escaped death after the building collapsed, during the ordination service of Bishop Akan Weeks.

In a press statement signed by his personal assistant, Mr. Ekerette Udoh, the Governor said he was trapped in the building when it came crashing.

About 50 people are reported to have lost their lives.

He also commiserated with the families of the victims and ordered an immediate investigation into the tragedy.

“The Government of Akwa Ibom State has commiserated with the families of the victims of the collapsed building at Reigners Bible Church International along Uyo Village road.

“His Excellency, the Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Mr Udom Emmanuel was present at the church service during the incident and thereafter personally supervised rescue operations and evacuation of the injured to the hospital. The State Government will undertake the medical treatment of the victims.

“A high-powered panel of enquiry is being constituted to ascertain the immediate and remote factors leading to the collapse of the church building with a view to forestall the re-occurrence of such incident and bring to book persons found to have compromised professional standards in the construction of the building”, the statement read?.

Hmmmmmm...am completely stunned and speechless. But the picture depicts a building that is under construction, putting a question mark on the competence and professionalism of the contractor who couldn't advice the Bishop-elect against using such a venue for his coronation.
Over 80% of accidents are said to be caused by man, yet some unscrupulous elements will end up blaming God and nature. It's really painful indeed.
