Nigeria Will Help Rebuild The UN Building - Pres. Goodluck Jonathan

PRESIDENT Goodluck Jonathan yesterday promised that Nigeria would help in the reconstruction of the United Nations' building in Abuja destroyed by a bomb blast last Friday.  



He gave the assurance while speaking to the United Nations' Deputy Secretary-General, Dr. Asha-Rose Migiro at the State House, Abuja.  



According to a statement from the Presidency, The Nigerian Govt. would offer temporary accommodation to the United Nations to enable them 'continue doing the good humanitarian work they have been doing'.



The president once again expressed condolence to the United Nations' family for the sad loss of lives and pledged assistance to enable the immediate evacuation of the dead to their countries and the wounded for medical treatment.  

He, however, commended Nigerians and foreign nationals who helped in the rescue operations and all efforts to bring relief to those affected by this condemnable act of destruction of lives and property.  



Earlier, Migiro denied that the United Nations ( UN) received any advance warnings by any terrorist group on the blast.



She thanked the Nigerian govt. for the offer to rebuild the destroyed UN building and for their show of concern to the victims of the Friday blast.
