As the flood looms, the Edo State Government has pledged support for indigenes living in the riverine communities in Edo State, announcing that it has put in place quick plans to create and provide relief materials to the residents in the areas.
Speaking to journalists on the state’s preparedness for the much predicted flood, the commissioner for Public Safety and Security, Kingsley Uwagbale, said the relevant stakeholders including Edo SEMA, Ministry of Public Safety and Security and NEMA, have made adequate preparations including several visits to the various expected flood impact communities to sensitize and access levels of preparation and put in place adequate response and recovery plans.
He said,” Because we know this is going to happen, we have had to move quickly to ensure that our IDP camps are in a good state in preparation for receiving potential victims of the imminent flooding.
“The communities in flood impact zones have been urged to cooperate with their LEMC (Local Emergency Management Committee) and move upland.
“Our LEMCs across the zones will give us daily on-the-spot updates in collaboration with Local Government Council leadership to ensure we mitigate the impacts,” the commissioner stated, adding, “Government has stocked food and non-food items and other applicable materials and resources to support victims as the floods come.”
