The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has urged the state and federal governments to be more proactive to curb flood disaster in the country.
A statement by the party’s Head, Publicity Division Administration, Chinwe Nnorom said the party expressed its sympathy with government and people of Benue over recent devastating flood in Benue.
She stated that “we call on both the state and Federal Government to be more proactive by taking adequate steps to put in place mechanisms that will curtail such level of disaster in other flood-prone areas across the country.”
“We pray for the souls of all those that lost their lives to rest in perfect peace and condole with affected families to bear this irreparable loss.”
President Muhammadu Buhari had instantly directed the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) to provide relief materials to support persons affected by the flood.
The flood took down two major bridges on River Guma at Tor Kpande, and Mande Ortom.
