Ore explosion: Ondo APC laments loss of lives

The loss of lives in Ore, Odigbo Local Government area of Ondo State on Sunday, came to us as a terribly shocking news. It was an unfortunate and lamentable occurrence.

The Ondo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) mourns the untimely but avoidable death of the victims. It was a painfully touching scene.

The party urges Nigerians to be more careful with explosive items, no matter the level of temptation. Petroleum products give no notice before explosion.

Times are hard, no doubts, but we are very certain that the situation will begin to relax very soon. We need to stay safe, and in good health to keep hope alive.

We deeply sympathize with the bereaved families, friends, and the Ore community. We pray God to comfort them.
May the souls of the victims rest in peace.

Publicity Secretary,
Ondo APC
