FG promise to build 200 houses for Jibia 2018 flood victims
The Federal Government under the leadership of Muhammadu Buhari said that it has concluded plans to build no fewer than 200 houses for the victims of last year’s (2018) flooding in Jibia, Katsina State.
This was disclosed to the press when a team of top officials of the National Emergency Management Agency, State Emergency Agency and state Ministry of Environment went on an on-spot assessment of the situation to Jibia on Wednesday.
The team was led by NEMA’s Director of Relief and Rehabilitation, Dr Kayode Fagbemi.
Spokesman for SEMA, Ukasha Umar, confirmed the development.
While commenting on the development, the Jibia residents expressed their fear over what they called ‘unending heavy rainfall’ in the town.
Recall that flooding claimed no fewer than 50 people and ravaged the town in 2018.
Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo, who visited the town, promised that the Federal Government would assist victims of the incident.
