The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) will soon provide further assistance to the Daura community in the state of Katsina, which was hit by enormous floods last week.
A statement from the special assistant media and advertising specialist, Mallam Garba Shehu, states that, contrary to the allegations that President Muhammadu Buhari had turned his back on the people of Daura, relief materials had been sent before the victims to the 48 hours after the flood
He said: “Ten trailer loads of building materials, including zinc, planks and cement, as well as tons of grains, cereals and other edibles have so far been delivered.
“The flood victims also received blankets and mattresses.
“Materials were delivered to and signed for by stakeholders while the Emir of Daura, Alhaji Umar Faruk Umar, welcomed the prompt emergency response from NEMA officials.”
NEMA, he said, has equally promised that in line with establishment practices all over the country, as soon as the assessment of the damage to the flood-ravaged communities is reported, more food items and building materials would be dispatched.
