ORTOM DIRECTS IMMEDIATE DISTRIBUTION OF RELIEF MATERIALS TO FLOOD VICTIMS

By Jimin Geoffrey

Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom today directed the immediate distribution of relief materials to flood victims in the state.
Governor Ortom gave the directive today when he visited Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, at the Makurdi International Market, one of the camps for persons affected by the recent flooding in Makurdi.
He urged all those in charge of the relief materials to ensure equitable distribution of the pre-assessment of the items given to the state by the National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA.
The Governor while appreciating the prompt intervention of President Muhammadu Buhari and the Nigerian Air Force for providing a medical outstation to attend to the health needs of the Internally Displaced Persons, also appreciated the media for adequately publicising the disaster.
He stated that the state government would continue to do everything within its limited resources to provide comfort for the displaced persons, even as he called on capable persons to assist IDPs close to them by way of providing shelter or relief materials.
The Governor charged those living in flood prone areas to relocate to safer places, assuring that government would not sit and watch people build on waterways.
Governor Ortom symbolically kick started distribution of the relief materials to IDPs in the camp.
