Gov. Atiku Bagudu of Kebbi said on Friday that the State Government had provided N200 million to assist flood victims in 12 Local Government Area of the state.

Bagudu disclosed this in Birnin Kebbi when he received undisclosed relief assistance from the Director-General, National Emergency Management Agency, Alhaji Muhammad Sidi.

He said the state government would assist flood victims with fertiliser, water pumping machines and assorted seedlings to be used in dry season farming.

The governor commended the Federal Government for the provision of relief materials through the NEMA.

Bagudu said the state government would ensure judicious use and distribution of all items given to the victims.

The Director General, NEMA, commended the governor for responding quickly to the plight of flood victims in the state.

“You have not only demonstrated good governance but also empathy, insight and loving kindness towards the affected people – a legacy I will like to see continue.” (NAN)
