The Federal Government had, on Sunday, said the floods ravaging parts of the country have so far claimed 603 lives.

The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has called on the federal government to immediately come to the rescue of Nigerians affected by flood.
Obi said this while sympathising with Nigerians in various states who have been displaced by the flood.
Obi also called on the Federal Government and the National Emergency Management Agency to assist those displaced by the floods.
He made this known in a series of tweets on Tuesday.
Obi said, “The devastating enormity of the 2022 flooding and the damages it has wreaked on several states, namely, Benue, Kogi, Anambra, Delta, Bayelsa, and Nasarawa, is mind-boggling.

“So far, over 600 lives were reportedly lost, and over 2 million people displaced.

“I sympathise with those directly affected by the loss of lives and properties. At a time our country contends with rising food insecurity due to banditry and insurgency, the ravaging floods will have deleterious consequences on food production, as well as orchestrate higher food prices.

“I call on FGN and NEMA to expeditiously assist those affected by this natural disaster.”
The Federal Government had, on Sunday, said the floods ravaging parts of the country have so far claimed 603 lives.
The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management, and Social Development, Sadiya Farouq, disclosed this at a press conference in Abuja.
She said, “As of today (Sunday), the number of persons affected nationwide is 2,504,095. The number of those displaced nationwide is 1,302,589; the number of injuries is 2,407, and the number of deaths is 603.”
