Bayelsa Governor Sympathizes with Flood-Impacted Communities, Victims.

Bayelsa State Governor Douye Diri has said his government feels the pain and suffering of communities and individuals affected by the flood.

Governor Diri while speaking during the 90th State Executive Council Meeting held inside the Executive Chambers of Government House, Yenagoa also assured that the government will give priority to alleviate the suffering of victims.

The governor said it was his concern that necessitated the setting up of the task force on flooding, which has already visited more than one hundred impacted communities.

He noted that the state’s aquatic nature makes it heavily impacted as available reports indicate that comparatively this year’s flood would be worse than that of 2012e with some lives lost.

Appealing to well-meaning citizens to come to the aid of victims, Governor Diri equally called on the federal government to partner the state in working out a permanent solution to the flood.
