FLOOD: 10 Kogi Local Govts Submerged Under Water — Gov. Bello Cries Out
Kogi, Nigeria News 17th September, 2018: Governor Yahaha Bello of Kogi State on Monday in Abuja updated President Muhammadu Buhari on the flood disaster that submerged more than 200 communities in 10 local government areas of the state.
Bello, who spoke to State House correspondents after the closed-door meeting, said he briefed the president on the happenings in the state.
He commended the Federal Government for its interventions but expressed regret that the magnitude of the disaster was such that required government to supply more relief materials for the victims.
“As usual, I came to brief Mr. President about the situation. I am sure you are all aware of the flood problem that is happening all over the country and Kogi is worst hit being the confluence state, confluence of the two rivers.
“So, we are worst hit and I needed to come and present the report to him myself. Even though I sincerely appreciate Mr. President for deploying relevant agencies like NEMA (National Emergency Management Agency) and all the security agencies to come to our aid.
“As I speak to you, NEMA is on their way to Lokoja to access the level of damage and we have received substantial amount of relief materials so far, it is not enough. I need to present the report to him as well and also to tell him about the security of the state and how we are doing.
“We are doing very well and I thank all the security agencies who have been assisting us to make sure we curb insecurity in the state. So these are the issues that I brought to Mr President.’’
