Flood: NEDC Donates Relief Materials To Adamawa Communities

Must read

Thousands of people have been displaced by flooding in northern Nigeria

The Managing Director of the North East Development Commission (NEDC), Mohammed Alkali, has donated relief items to 254 communities affected by flood in Adamawa State.

The MD said the commission during the World Humanitarian Day on 18th August 2022 in Borno State, promised to share food and non-food items to be distributed in the six north-eastern states due to the economic hardship, through the Presidential Committee on Repatriation, Return, and Resettlement of the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs).

He reiterated that since there were many affected communities in Adamawa, the items should be channelled to the displaced flood victims who have lost their property and wealth. 

“At that time, nobody envisaged that there will be flooding in the northeast so the intervention came in timely. Then, the president collected the items on behalf of the committee he had set up earlier on to look into the issue of rehabilitation and resettlement in the northeast region, and he handed it over to the vice chairman of the committee. The minister has directed that it should go round, especially since flood affected most of the state,” he told the Daily Trust newspaper.
