Peter Obi takes boat ride in flooded Anambra community

The presidential candidate of Labour Party, Mr. Peter Obi paid a visit to his home state of Anambra on Saturday to pay homage to some flooded communities.

At Ogbaru, Obi rode some boats to other communities. This is coming after he visited Benue State on Friday to see for himself the extent of the damage the flood has caused.

He wondered why the Federal government still hasn’t declared a flood emergency.

“Earlier today, I also visited the flood ravaged areas of Ogbaru in Anambra State and the IDP Camp in Atani. The infrastructural damage is extensive. In comiserating with the people, I promised that my needs assessment visit will help in determining recommendations to Federal and donor agencies on priority recovery projects.

“In continuation of my visits to areas affected by flood, I visited parts of Anambra East and West with stakeholders; Dr Tony Nwoye, and Chief Peter “McPee” Aniekwe. Houses were submerged to the roof levels. I’m still wondering why the FGN have not formally declared a flood emergency and intervention modalities.
