Tinubu gives N40 million to Edo flood victims
On Sunday, All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu gave N40 million to flood victims in Edo.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the flooding in Edo’s Etsako Central, Etsako East, and Esan Southeast Local Government Areas resulted in the displacement of about 32,893 people.
According to Oshiomhole, the funds are for residents of the three local government districts whose homes, farms, and other property were ruined by the flooding.
He claims that the hardest hit area, Etsako Central, will receive N20 million, Etsako East N12 million, and Esan Southeast N8 million.
Due to the need to assist the flood victims immediately, Tinubu stated I should represent him even though he had intended to travel alone in the chopper he planned to utilize.
Etsako Central, which has more than 19,061 impacted people, will receive N20 million; Etsako East, which has 7,742 affected people, will receive N12 million; and Esan Southeast, which has more than 6,000 victims, will receive N8 million.
Oshiomhole, who is running for the Edo North senate seat, vowed Tinubu’s commitment to addressing the flood issue by building dams to absorb water discharged at the Lagdo Dam in neighboring Cameroon for agricultural irrigation.
You should support Tinubu, he advised, if you want to permanently end the nation’s flood problem.
He said I should tell you, people, that he would build a dam that would be used to collect the water released from Lagdo Dam in Cameroon if you vote for him.
He also urged the people to vote for all APC candidates in the forthcoming elections so as to get more dividends of democracy.
You people know what I did for you when I was the governor and I want you to also vote for me to go to the Senate and you will get more,’’ Oshiomhole said.
Alhaji Waziri Oshiomah, a community leader, responded on behalf of the villages and thanked Tinubu for the donation while assuring
