The National Emergency Management Agency on Tuesday in IIorin presented relief materials worth millions of naira to flood victims in Kwara State.
The materials were presented by the NEMA Zonal Coordinator, Mr. Ishaya Chonoko, to the Special Adviser, Emergency and Relief Services to the Governor, Alhaji Musa Abdullahi, the News Agency of Nigeria reports.
The items included over 200 bags of rice, 350 mattresses, clothes and food items.
Chinoko said the items were provided to meet the immediate needs of the victims in the five affected council areas.
He said NEMA presented the materials to complement what the Federal Government, state government and corporate bodies had already provided for the victims.
Chinoko advised government to ensure that the materials were distributed on time to the victims in the affected local government areas of the state.
Responding, Abdullahi thanked NEMA for the kind gesture and assured NEMA that the materials would be delivered to all genuine victims.
He called on wealthy individuals and corporate organisations in the state to assist the victims, saying government alone could not solve the problems facing flood victims.
