Flood Submerges Benue State Leading Governor Ortom to Request for Help from the F.G.

Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has asked the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), to liaise with the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) on helping those displaced find shelter.

He called on the Federal Government for help after a massive flood left the capital, Makurdi, and other parts of the State under water.

The flooded areas include Zone 4, Wurukum, Gebade, Nyinma, Ghana, Naka Road, Wadatta Gboko Road and Media village in Achusa, after a downpour that fell from around 12.24 AM and lasted until 5 AM.

The governor lamented that the flood is happening at a time his state is finding it difficult to pay salaries.

He asked the FG to come to the aid of Benue State and made a plea for support.
