Following the death of ten girls last week to flood, Niger State governor, Alhaji Abubakar Sani-Bello, has sought for federal government’s intervention in addressing various ecological challenges in the state. The governor, who spoke during a condolence visit to the flood victims during an inspection of some of the affected flood areas in Rafin Gora village and Kontagora town in Kontagora local government area of the state where the ten girls died.
The governor specifically called on the federal government to come to the aid of the flood victims of Rafin Gora community in Kontagora local government area of the state, saying that the ecological devastation wreaked by the last week disaster in the two communities was beyond the capacity of the state.
Consequently, he called for the assistance of the federal government in order to find a quick and lasting solution to the affected areas as temporary measures are being taken by the state government.
The governor said the plans was to move the affected people living around the flood prone areas to a more conducive area, adding that, “From what I have seen today, it appears we have to act sooner than later. Unfortunately there had been loss of lives here. The havoc here is a very serious one. But like we said this is definitely beyond our resources at the state level.
“We have reached out to the federal government to get their support. I learnt the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has been here to assess the damage and I believe when we partner with the federal government we will find a lasting solution to this disaster,” he said.
