Councilor representing Jeremi Ward 3, Ughelli South Local Government Area of Delta State, Sunday Apah, has appealed to the state and federal government to come to the aid of his people, following the submerging of over 30 houses by flood at Otu-Jeremi.
Apah, who is the Chairman, House Committee on Information, Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions in Ughelli South Legislative Arm, made this known during an inspection tour on the level of damages caused by the ravaging flood, yesterday.
“I am surprised at the level in which the flood destroyed property in the area. As a result, many have been rendered homeless, but as a member of the Ughelli South Legislative Arm, I will do my best to see how the situation could be managed pending when help comes from the state and federal government.
“As a local government, we can only do our best because of the meager resources from the federal government. I want to appeal to my people to be patient for a while, they will definitely be taken care of by the government,” he added.
Meanwhile, a youth leader of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ughelli South, Mr. Sadiq Hitler, lamented how the flood rendered him homeless.
