(MUST READ) What Senator David Mark said about Benue flooding

Written By Idoma Television on Sunday, September 3, 2017 | 3:49:00 AM

Immediate past President of the Senate, Senator David Mark has called on the Federal Government of Nigeria to help Benue state out of the current flood disaster, which ravaged parts of the State .

IDOMA VOICE  reports that thousands of citizens have been rendered homeless as hundreds  of houses and other  properties  were submerged by the   flood largely influenced by the torrential rainfall.

Mark in a statement by his spokesman, Paul Mumeh, sympathized with  the government and people of Benue state, describing the disaster as monumental.

He therefore urged the National Emergency Management Agency ( NEMA) to  intervene by bringing relief materials  for the thousands of citizens  already displaced by the flood.

He said, “Senator Mark also enjoined  organizations and good  spirited individuals to render  assistance to the flood ravaged communities  in the  state.

“The former Senate helmsman however counseled citizens to adhere strictly to town planning rules and regulations  for buildings as part of measures to prevent reoccurrence of such disaster.”

Benue  state was one of the states ravaged by flood in the 2012  disaster believed to have been orchestrated by  the release of water from the Lagbo Dam in Cameroun .
