Sokoto appeals for assistance amid flooding

14 September 2015, 08:57Emeka Okonkwo

Abuja - Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, has appealed to the Federal Government to aid the state in its plans to resettle flood victims.

The premier this past weekend visited some communities ravaged by flood in Tangaza and Gudu local government.

The governor, who visited Sakkwai and Kutufare villages in the affected local government areas, said the damage caused by flood this raining season was unprecedented.

More than 150 houses and farmlands have been destroyed.

He said the state government had already embarked on measures to ascertain the damage done to these facilities.

“So far, many victims have been camped at government approved sites across the state,” said Tambuwal.

Meanwhile, Tambuwal has directed the state road maintenance agency to take urgent steps to repair the road linking Tangaza and Gudu council areas, which had been submerged by floods.

He cautioned residents of the two villages to desist from any acts that could block waterways.

He thus called on the people of the state to pray against a recurrence of the recent flood disaster.
