1,800 Ogun flood victims get materials

By - - [General ]

The Ogun State government has kick-started the distribution of materials to 1,800 flood victims in Abeokuta North and South local government areas.

At the distribution of the materials to flood victims on July 13 at the Arcade Ground, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, Governor Ibikunle Amosun said flooding is a global phenomenon.

The governor noted that it is caused by climate change and continues to wreck more havoc in different parts of the world.

Represented by his deputy, Mrs. Yetunde Onanuga, the governor said mostly affected structures were on flood prone areas with poor sanitation.

He urged relevant government agencies to be more effective at ensuring good environmental sanitation to prevent a recurrence.

Also, the Director General of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), Mustafa Maihaja, who was represented by the Chief Planning Officer, Mr. Segun Afolayan, said 1,800 victims registered with NEMA and their items were ready for distribution.

The NEMA chief urged the Federal Government to sign the agency’s bill into law to enable it perform its duties.

The Commissioner for Environment Bolaji Oyeleye said the materials distributed to the flood victims included foodstuffs, building materials and mattresses.

He advised the beneficiaries to use them well.

On behalf of other beneficiaries, Mrs. Anike Ogunsola and Mr. Abayomi Idowu, expressed appreciation to the Federal and state governments.

The duo urged the governments to ensure proper enforcement of environmental laws.
