Kwara State Government has received various relief materials from the National Emergency Management Agency for victims of rainstorms in parts of the state, following efforts by Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq and the federal lawmakers from the state.
The governor’s spokesman, Rafiu Ajakaye, in a statement said this came barely three weeks after his boss visited the NEMA headquarters to seek urgent support for the victims.
Ajakaye recalled that in a meeting with the governor mid-September, NEMA Director-General Muhammadu Muhammed had promised to urgently treat the request.
Ajakaye said the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development Sadiya Umar-Farouk, would visit Kwara State today to flag off the distribution of the relief materials.
He said the governor was very grateful to the Federal Government for coming to the aid of the people of the state in record time; and the state.
He said the governor also commended the three senators and the House of Representatives members from the state for their efforts and patriotic roles in joining him to speak up for “Kwarans in distress, culminating in the delivery of the relief materials”.
