Delta State Governor and Vice-Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, Wednesday, empathised flood victims in the state and called on the Federal Government, corporate organisations and individuals to come to the aid of victims of flood in the state.

Okowa who stated this when he visited flood victims at Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camps at Utagba-Ogbe Technical College, Kwale in Ndokwa West; Alaka Grammar School, Ozoro in Isoko North; St. Michael’s College, Oleh and Isoko Central School, Oleh both in Isoko South Local Government Areas of the state, assured that his administration would continue to support them until they were able to return to their homes after the flood crisis.

Lamenting that the state government may not be able to estimate the extent of destruction, he decried that the flood was obviously very massive.

He said: “This is the seventh camp we have visited since yesterday – three yesterday and four today and we have four other established camps. Beyond that, there are so many community camps that are being managed in the communities.

“It is a very extensive flood with a lot of displacement of people and I must thank all the various persons that have come here in the camp to stay.

“In all the camps we have visited they are actually bonding together as a family and when the state government and other willing donors are providing food materials, the women themselves are cooking and they are all living happily together.

“I am also very glad that the children have started school here and at the other camps we had visited.
