“I call on FGN and NEMA to expeditiously assist those affected by this natural disaster.” –Peter Obi
The Presidential candidate of Labour Party, Peter Obi, has shared his sympathy with the victims of the flood.
He made his feelings known via his twitter page on Tuesday.
Peter Obi called on the Federal Government and the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) to come to the aid of Nigerians affected by the flood.
“The devastating enormity of the 2022 flooding and the damages it has wreaked on several states, namely, Benue, Kogi, Anambra, Delta, Bayelsa, and Nasarawa, is mind-boggling.
“I sympathise with those directly affected by the loss of lives and properties. At a time our country contends with rising food insecurity due to banditry and insurgency, the ravaging floods will have deleterious consequences on food production, as well as orchestrate higher food prices.
It has also been confirmed that the flood has taken many lives. According to the Government, 603 lives has already been be claimed by the flood.
