Professor Chukwuma Soludo, the governor of Anambra State, has enlisted the help of all levels of government, organizations, and people to combat the flooding that is now wreaking havoc in various regions of the nation, including the state.
In order to give a long-term solution, Soludo emphasized that the floodwater originated and surged from Cameroon and encouraged the Federal Administration to communicate with the Cameroonian government.
He made the statement on Thursday while meeting displaced people from Anambra West and IDP camps at Umuoba Anam and Ekpe Nneyi, Umueri in Anambra East Local Government Area. He was also visiting the Internally Displaced Persons’ camps put up for flood victims in Onitsha North Local Government Area.
The governor made a plea for assistance to lessen the suffering of those who had been uprooted by floods throughout the nation in general and Anambra State in particular.
He said, “The government of the state of Anambra is making every effort to lessen the suffering of the people. Due to the flooding of their homes, properties, and farms, they need assistance both now and in the future. They will have to restart their lives, and I’m afraid of that.
People from Delta State are arriving to join the IDP Camp in Onitsha North. More than 400 displaced people have reported here only today.
