Wildfires: Buhari offers to help Turkey

President Muhammadu Buhari has made a telephone call to Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan, offering to help as the European country grapples with ravaging wildfires.

Buhari also expressed his sympathy over the destruction wrought by the wildfires.

The wildfires ravaged vast territories, torching houses, farmland, wildlife, and humans in several places in the country last week.

In a statement, Buhari’s media aide Garba Shehu said the president expressed condolences over the loss of lives and property in the wildfires.
