Rivers Government Assures Flood Victims of Continual Assistance

By Chioma Andy
Rivers State Government has asserted its decision to continue helping victims of last year flood in Rivers State so as to ameliorate their condition. 
Commissioner for Special Duties and Member of the Flood Relief Committee, Barr. Dickson Umunakwe, gave the assurance on Friday, 1st February 2013, while handing over farm seedlings to the Chairman of Abua/Odual, Ahoada East, and Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni at their respective LGA headquarters for onward distribution to farmers.
He noted that the situation was a reflection of love and care from Governor Ameachi who according to him was not meant for the state indigenes affected by flood alone, but for all the affected people in the State, hence urging the chairmen to ensure equitable distribution of the items.
The farm relief items included bundles of Cassava stems, Yams, Banana and Plantain Suckers.
The L.G. Chairmen expressed their gratitude while assuring him of even distribution of the seedlings and food items.
In another development, the Special Duties boss during his unscheduled visit to Ahoada Fire Station gave seven days ultimatum to those that encroached on the fire station land at Ahoada to vacate or face legal action.
He added that the Ministry would embark on the fencing of the premises.
