Tukur visits Adamawa flood victims

03 September 2012, 10:05

Adamawa -   The PDP National Chairman, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur, on Sunday has expressed the party's sympathy to the government and people of Adamawa over the recent flood disaster in the state.  

Tukur, who visited the flood victims in some camps in Yola North, Yola South and Girei Local Governments, said that the ruling party was very concerned about their plight.

He said that the authorities concerned would do everything possible to assist them and ensure that such disaster did not recur. 

Tukur lauded the government of Adamawa and other organisations that had been tirelessly to assist the victims, adding that the party on its  part, would continue to work towards ensuring good governance.

Responding in one of the camps visited, the District Head of Yola, Sa'ad Bawuru, commended the national chairman for the concern shown, saying that it was the first by any political party. 

The party chairman also visited Gov. Murtala Nyako and the Lamido of Adamawa, Barkindo Mustapha, to commiserate with them.

Many communities in seven local government areas of Demsa, Yola North, Yola South, Fufore, Lamurde and Numan were last week submerged by flood water released from Lagdo Dam in Cameroon.
