Governor Diri receives applaud for prompt response to flood victims

Chairman Nigeria Young Professionals Forum, Moses Siloko Siasia has lauded Bayelsa State Governor, Douye Diri for handling of the ravaging
flood in the state. In a statement, Mr. Siasia said he is particularly impressed that the Governor has shelved all engagements outside the state including political campaigns to stay with his people in these trying times, an act that is uncommon from politicians.

He also noted with delight efforts made by the Governor to mitigate the effects of the flood through the release of funds and his tour of flood impacted communities in the state on daily basis. He said such action proves that he has the true interest of his people at heart.

According to him, the decision of the state government to set up a post flood management and rehabilitation committee headed by the State Deputy Governor is a step in the right direction. While adding his voice to the call on the Federal Government to assist the state in the recovery process, he also called on stakeholders and Bayelsans at large to close ranks and join hands with the state government to navigate the people through this difficult moment.
