Nigeria: FG distributes relief materials to 2,500 Daura flood victims

WorldStage NewsOnline—- The Federal Government through the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has distributed relief materials to no fewer than 2,200 flood victims in Daura Local Government Area of Katsina State as part of its effort to provide temporary relief to the victims.

About 3,500 households had been affected by flood due to a recent heavy downpour which lasted for about 14 consecutive hours.

Alhaji Aminu Nadari, Chairman of the local relief distribution committee said in Daura on Tuesday, that all the affected victims had been provided with relief materials which included bags of rice, beans, maize, blankets, mattresses, cooking oil, roofing sheets, ceiling and rubber mats.

He added that the level and degree of damaged suffered by an individual victim determined the quantity of relief materials he received.

“We are meticulous in the entire process as no one is left out.’’

Nadari noted that the remaining 800 victims would be covered when the committee receives the remaining two trucks of the relief materials, expected to arrive “any moment from now.”

He called on the beneficiaries to make judicious use of the materials and warned that the agency would not condone any act of sabotage.

Hajiya Halima Shehu, a beneficiary who lost three rooms to the flood, commended NEMA for the gesture and lauded the committee for being fair and just in the distribution process.

NEMA delivered 300 bags of rice, beans, maize, 1,200 bags of cement, 500 bundles of roofing sheets and 100 packets of nails.
