Sokoto Assem­bly makes case for flood­rav­aged com­mu­ni­ties

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Rakiya A.Muham­mad, Sokoto

The Sokoto State House of Assem­bly has urged the state govern­ment to res­cue flood rav­aged com­mu­ni­ties in Tam­buwal Lo­cal Govern­ment Area.

This fol­lowed a mo­tion by mem­ber rep­re­sent­ing Tam­buwal West, Al­haji Sule Romo who said last week’s flood dis­as­ter in Barca, Madaci, Bakaya and Maya vil­lages wreaked havoc that needed to be ad­dressed.

Romo said the peo­ple were ex­pe­ri­enc­ing var­i­ous forms of hard­ship with many houses and prop­er­ties de­stroyed and farm­lands and crops sub­merged, leav­ing many in­hab­i­tants home­less.

“The ar­eas be­came flood rav­aged for years due to lack of good drainages,” he said, as­sert­ing that the re­oc­cur­ring flood wors­ened this year and there was the like­li­hood of out­break of cholera if ur­gent mea­sures were not taken.

The mo­tion which was sec­onded by mem­ber rep­re­sent­ing Tam­buwal East, Al­haji Mode Sanyinna, was unan­i­mously adopted by the House.
