Reps to condole with victims of collapsed church in Uyo

By Wahab Akanji, Abuja
Members of the House of Representatives have resolved to send a delegation to condole with families of victims of the Reigners Bible Church that collapsed during the ordination service in Uyo, Akwa Ibom.
The incident took place December 10 during an ordination service of the Senior pastor and that over 29 persons were killed , while hundreds sustained various degree of injuries.
This resolution followed a motion by a member, Francis Uduyok (PDP-Akwa-Ibom), which was unanimously adopted.
Moving the motion, Uduyok expressed sadness over the incident saying it (the incidence) threw the people of Akwa Ibom and indeed the whole country into mourning.
He expressed worry about the incessant collapse of buildings, recalling the case of the Synagogue Church of all Nations two years ago, when a six story building.
He further recalled that the collapsed Synagogue Church building killed 115 persons, 84 of whom were foreigners.
Uduyok further expressed worry that such incidents were still occurring because no engineer, architect or contractor had been convicted for complicity in the past.
“I believe that approvals and nature of engineering works on high-rise buildings meant to accommodate many people at any given time must be thoroughly screened by the relevant regulatory authorities with a view to ensuring that requisite standards are not compromised.”
The House also commended Gov. Udom Emmanuel, the Nigeria Police, the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) and other public-spirited individuals for their efforts in the rescue of persons trapped in the collapsed building.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the house observed one- minute silence for the repose of the deceased .
