Governor Diri Duoye speaks on Flood crisis in Bayelsa

A few weeks ago, Bayelsa State Governor, Douye Diri, said Water has no respect for anybody as his private building at Sampou Community in the Kolokuma/Opokuma local government area of the state is also flooded.

Diri stated this during an on-the-spot assessment of the flood in some communities in the state.

The governor visited communities like Tungbo, Sagbama town and Adagbabiri, all in Sagbama Local Government Area.

Diri told the people he wanted to get first-hand knowledge of what the communities were going through.

He said: “I felt this was not the time for me to sit in my office while my brothers and sisters are in pains, hunger and in want. So I came to see things for myself.

“Roads have been overtaken by flood, houses submerged and the people are now internally displaced. We have sought out some high grounds where some of them will be resettled temporarily. We have also made palliative and medicines available.

“I came out in order to comfort the people so that they will know that their government stands with them in their time of trouble.

“Water has no respect for anybody as my house is also flooded in my community. So, everybody should be strong and be careful this period, particularly the women. Your children should not go into the water. It is a very tempting period but I know God will see us through.

“I have approved N450 million to provide succour for the people, which is the first tranche. Having seen things for myself, we will approve more money so our people can have something to eat while they go through this experience,” he said.
