The Kwara state Government during an inspection of the flooded areas at Lafiagi, reassured the flood victims of its continued support and intervention.
A statement by Modupe Joel, the Chief Press Secretary to the Deputy Governor, Mr. Kayode Alabi, indicated that the Governor was represented by the Deputy.
The Governor expressed this today at the Palace of the Emir of Lafiagi during his visit to the flooded Agrarian community of Pututa village and Gwa bridge in Lafiagi town.
He said the Governor sympathised with the people on the sad incident that occurred at the Pututa village and Gwa bridge in Lafiagi community where farmers lost farm investment worth millions of naira due to the ravaging flood in the community.
The Emir of Lafiagi, Alh. Mohammed Kudi Kawu said the flooding has been reoccurring for years and it is majorly caused by the dredging of the Niger River which is close to the community. This crisis he said is overwhelming to the economy since Lafiagi is a strong agrarian community.
He commended Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq for responding in less than 24 hours to their distress call. OYO NEWS
