Posted by

Victims of the flood disaster and violence against farmers and herders in Benue State were given relief supplies on Friday by the state government and the North Central Zonal Headquarters of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA).

Victims in the North Bank Internally Displaced Persons camp in the Makurdi Local Government Area of the State were given the relief supplies.

Mr. Eugene Louis Nyelong of NEMA’s North Central Zonal Office, who oversaw the process, stated that the goods had been approved following a collaborative evaluation with BSEMA, the emergency management agency of Benue State.

Efforts to ensure the timely delivery of relief supplies to aid IDPs were lauded by him, as were those of Governor Alia and Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Sen. George Akume.

According to Nyelong, their generous act had significantly reduced the terrible hardships endured by flood victims and the many others in the camps.

On behalf of the state government, the relief supplies were received by SEMA Executive Secretary James Iorpuu. Iorpuu expressed gratitude to the federal government for their help and noted that the relief items will greatly alleviate the suffering of the internally displaced persons and flood victims.

Mr. Donald Komgbenda, Head of Administration and Supply, spoke on behalf of Mr. Iorpuu, who urged the displaced to continue supporting Governor Alia’s administration.
