Addressing the victims of the flood disaster and their leaders, the governor said that in almost eight years of President Buhari’s administration, “Nigeria has never witnessed the level of social interventions to alleviate the sufferings of the common man as the one under Mr. President Buhari.

“President Muhammadu Buhari’s government has done something different from other governments by even paying those Nigerians who are not working, money and other allowances through various intervention polices. And most importantly, he crowned it all by setting up a Ministry of Humanitarian Services to deal with the issues of humanitarian challenges.”
The governor also commended the leadership of the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management, Hajia Sadiya Umar Farouq, for the good works she is doing in her Ministry, noting, “She has been severally in Imo State and in each occasion Imo citizens benefited from the various programmes she came with.”
The governor said that under the minister’s watch, NEMA has lived up to expectations.
