Bayelsa Flood - VP Osinbajo Shares Update On Site Visit

On our way from Port Harcourt, we flew over many of the areas that have been flooded. We saw first hand, how bad the damage is, many homes are under water, farmland and businesses, it is a very major disaster indeed.

First, we thank God that everyone is alive, secondly, it is the duty of the Federal Government and State Government, to ensure that we provide help and succour for you, not just now while you are here, but more importantly when you have to go back home, because resettlement is the most important part of it.

I visited with the Minister of Environment, Mr Ibrahim Usman Jibril and also the DG of NEMA National Emergency Management Agency, Engr. Mustapha Yunusa Maihaja to assess for ourselves,

what exactly is going on. We want to know how bad it is, how many victims there are, the nature and extent of the disaster, so we can advise properly and give our brothers and sisters the kind of comfort and succour they need.

I must commend the spirit of those that we met, for not giving up at all, but remaining resolute and confident. That is the true Bayelsan spirit, the true spirit of the Nigerian, we cannot give up and we will not give up.

On behalf of President Muhammadu Buhari, on whose instructions I am here, that we will stand by you and make sure we provide what you need. I have already been told that some people still need mattresses, nets and all that. Happily, the Director General of NEMA Is here and we will make sure that IS provided. As for the cows and the meat, we will also look for a way of providing that because we cannot have rice, garri and beans without meat, there must also be meat.
