Dogara Breaks Down Over Death of 21 Bauchi Students,Says It's A Monumental Loss,National Tragedy

Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Yakubu Dogara, Tuesday evening broke down in tears after receiving the sad news of the demise of 21 students of Government Secondary School Misau, Bauchi state in a ghastly motor accident.

The students, who were accompanied by three teachers and their driver, were on their way to Kano State for an educational excursion when the unfortunate incident occurred.

A statement issued by the Speaker’s Special Adviser on Media & Public Affairs, Mr. Turaki Hassan quoted him as saying; “I am deeply saddened by the untimely and sudden death of these children. They died while pursuing education and in a quest for knowledge as future leaders of our country."

"This is a national tragedy of monumental proportion and a huge loss to the country. These children embodied our hopes and aspirations for a better society and their sudden death is a big loss to Nigeria because only God knows what they could have become in the future."

"I wish to extend my heartfelt condolences to their parents, students and teachers of Government Secondary School Misau, Misau Emirate Council and the entire Bauchi State over this tragic incident."

Hon Dogara said no amount of words would be enough to console their parents but prayed that God gives them the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.

"May their gentle souls rest in perfect peace and may we never witness this again."


  1. Oh God this is very sad. May their tender and lovely soul in perfect peace.

  2. my condolences to the parents, friends and families they left behind... RIP little angels.

  3. RIP young ones
    Hope there was no foul play. Boko haram hates education. Trust our government to cover it up

  4. This is so sad 😔 Lord console their parents, rip to them

  5. So sad, my condolences to the families. I remember traveling from Port-Harcourt to Kano by road in Nov 1992, when I represented my secondary school in a science competition.

  6. Dogara breaks down in tears over 21 students who died in a ghostly motor accident yes it's a monumental loss but the over 73 Benue victims that fulani herdsmen openly slaughted and the mass buriel nobody read about his breakdown so definitely they aren't monumental loss.


    RIP to the dead
