Delta State governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, has yesterday, called on the federal Government to come to the state’s aid as they battle with flood.
Okowa, who made the appeal while holding camps in Patani Local Government Area, said adequate manpower had been deployed to the camps.
“In the other town I have visited, the holding camps are in one school or another. But the schools in this area have been submerged. The flood waters may take time to recede. I just hope the Federal Government will urgently intervene to complement what the state government is doing.
“I must thank all Deltans who donated relief materials to assist the victims of the flood and I call on the organised private sector and individuals to come to the aid of the victims
Meanwhile, the state government has given relief materials and cash to victims of Akugbene landslide in Bomadi Local Government Area of the state.
The victims numbering over 20, were given 40 bundles of roofing sheets, 400 bags of cement, 50 packets of nails and an undisclosed amount of money.
