IMMEDIATE past governor of Delta State, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan, has warned that the ongoing flooding in the state may be worse than what was obtainable in 2012.

Delta South Senatorial hopeful, under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), gave the warning in his Facebook wall on Friday.

He said after taking a tour of some flooded areas in the state, it was frightening that water levels were still rising through “camps have been set up by various arms of government.”

Uduaghan said he further observed that “some of the affected victims have refused to move into the camps for various reasons, which includes emotional attachment to their homes, still harvesting their farm produce, especially cassava, no ‘transportation’ (the easiest excuse, but may not be true) etc.”

The former governor, however, appealed to individuals and corporate organizations to identify with the flood victims in cash and kind.


“I want to plead with well-meaning Deltans, Nigerians and international agencies to assist with the rehabilitation of the IDPs.

“Nothing is too small to assist with. Identify an IDP, send something as an individual or as a group, viz, clubs, old students associations, organisations and societies. Give emotional and psychological support.

“If God has blessed you and your community are flooded, please, go and help your people. Help to move them to IDPs camps. They need you.


“Our religious leaders should please mobilise their members to assist in one way or the other.

“Medical associations must find a way of assisting. The situation is serious and we must all act and act fast too,” the former governor pleaded.

Meanwhile, Delta State governor, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa, has said efforts were in top gear for the Ministry of Basic and Secondary Education to organise academic activities for school children who have temporarily taken shelter at the different IDP camps as a result of the flood which has submerged riverine communities in the state.

Okowa made the disclosure on Thursday during an interactive session with children during an unscheduled visit to Holding Camps set up for persons displaced by the flood.

The Governor, accompanied by his aides, visited the Holding Camps at Oneh and Ogbe-Afor Primary Schools, Asaba.

“I have listened to you (children) and your major concern is how to be engaged academically in the camp which is very good, the Commissioner for Basic and Secondary Education is already working on that; it is very important that the children are positively engaged in an organised manner.

“I have gone round the camp and noticed that people among you are cooking your food; it is a good development because, you must live as one united family, show love to one another.

“As a government, your welfare is our greatest concern; apart from providing necessary amenities, we have mobile clinics that are well-equipped to cater for your needs,” the governor said.
