The Nasarawa State House of Assembly has urged the state government and other relevant bodies to come to the aid of flood victims across communities in the state.
Speaker of the House, Ibrahim Balarabe Abdullahi, made the call Tuesday after John Osewu (PDP- Doma South) raised the issue of flood under the matter of public interest during the House proceedings.
Abdullahi said provision of relief materials to the victims of flood would go a long way in improving their standard of living and would also help in their resettlement.
“First and foremost, I want to commend John Osewu for speaking the minds of the people of Awe, Doma, Nasarawa, Toto among other local government areas.
“These four local government areas have been affected by flood with many houses submerged, farm lands washed away and properties destroyed.
“It is in view of this that we are urging the state government to as a matter of urgency come to the aid of the flood victims in the state.
“All relevant agencies should also come to the aid of the flood victims and relief materials should be provided,” he said.
