The governor, during the inspection of the flooded areas at Patigi, expressed his administration’s sympathy with the Etsu Patigi and the people of Pategi over the damage caused by the flood.
A statement issued on Thursday by the Chief Press Secretary to the Deputy Governor, Mrs Modupe Joel, said that the governor was represented by his deputy, Mr Kayode Alabi.
He reassured the flood victims of his administration’s continued support and intervention.
The Etsu Patigi, Alhaji Ibrahim Umar-Bologi, said since Patigi is a riverine area, flooding had become a recurring decimal in the area.
He noted that the flooding, triggered by rainstorm, ravaged Gbaradogi and Saachi communities, thereby caused massive destruction and displacement.
The traditional ruler, who appreciated the state government for its unrelenting support, appealed for quick intervention for the victim of the flood disaster.
