PDP condoles with Adamawa over flood disaster

04 September 2012, 15:08

Adamawa - The Peoples Democratic Party said on Tuesday that the welfare of Nigerians would continue to remain the centre-piece of its programme.

A statement signed by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh, and given to the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja, stated that the National Chairman, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, made the remark when he visited flood victims in Adamawa State.

“Our party belongs to the people of Nigeria, and the welfare of our people is the centre piece of every of our decision.

“Whatever hurts the people hurts us most especially, and we are to show our concern and support in this period of anguish and loss,” Tukur said.

He said the issue of flooding was a global phenomenon and appealed to stakeholders to join hands with government to address it.

“I want to assure you that our great party will leave no stone unturned in addressing this matter at the highest level of governance,” he added.

He pledged the party’s commitment to tackle the incident.

He was accompanied on the visit by members of the state executive of the PDP, led by Mijinyawa Kugama.

Tukur stated that it was in that direction that a high-powered delegation led by the Minister of Water Resources, Mrs, Sarah Ochekpe, visited the state for on-the-spot assessment of the ravaged areas.

In his remarks, Governor Murtala Nyako thanked the chairman for the visit and expressed government’s appreciation to the leadership of the party
