Dr. Dakuku Adol Peterside, governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in Rivers State in the April 11, 2015 election, has empathised with the Joinkrama, Akinima and Ubie communities currently ravaged by devastating floods which have displaced the inhabitants of the areas in Ahoada West Local Government Area of the state.

The devastating floods, occasioned by the Orashi River overflowing its banks, have submerged houses and farmlands of these agrarian communities, leading to the displacement of the inhabitants, their lives and livelihood generally disrupted and left stranded.

Dr. Peterside expressed his sadness over the avoidable sufferings the people of Joinkrama, Akinama, Ubie and other surrounding communities have been subjected to due to the floods.

He bemoaned in a statement issued in Port Harcourt and personally signed by him: “It is unfortunate to observe the disruption to lives and livelihoods of our people across these flooded communities at this time. Indeed, it is quite sad to note that most residents in the various communities now access their homes through canoes and makeshift bridges.”

Dr. Peterside called on relevant authorities to urgently intervene to save the lives and livelihood of the people of the affected areas who are largely farmers following the destruction of their entire farmlands by the ever-rising floods.

“Government should immediately come to the aid of these people by providing them safe location of aboard; urgent medical attention because of the imminent breakout of diseases and provide them food and safe drinking water until the situation returns to normal,” Dr Peterside stated.
