NEMA Supplies Relief Materials To Flood Victims In Osun

The governor of Osun State, Adegboyega Oyetola has praised the federal government for sending relief materials to flood victims in his state, attributing the state’s low incidences of flood disasters to proactive dredging of waterways.

He made the remark while receiving relief materials donated by the federal government to people affected by the state’s 2022 flood disasters.

Oyetola expressed satisfaction that Osun State remains one of the lowest states in ranking among the states affected by one form of flood disaster or the other in the country.

The governor who was represented by the Secretary to the State Government, Prince Wole Oyebamiji, in Osogbo maintained that his administration is always putting the safety and well-being of all the citizens of the state on its priority lists.

According to the state governor, his administration has always been in the good books of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) through one form of assistance or another.

Earlier, Alhaji Mustapha Habib Ahmed, Director General of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), stated that the results of assessment exercises conducted by critical stakeholders revealed that approximately 4,200 households were affected by flood disasters in Nigeria, in addition to several houses destroyed and cultivated hectares of farmlands submerged.
