Rainstorm Disaster: IEDPU Urges Help for Victims

Date: 2020-09-20

The National President of the Ilorin Emirate Descendants Progressive Union(IEDPU), Alhaji Aliyu O. Uthman, fsi,has appealed to both the Federal Government and the Kwara State Government as well as other good-spirited individuals and organisations to come to the aid of those who lost houses and other valuables to the rainstorm, which happened across the city of Ilorin over the weekend.

The President, in a statement he personally signed,a copy of which was made available to newsmen in Ilorin on Sunday, described the event as very terrible and extremely devastating.

He explained that the incident,which claimed some lives, also left hundreds of people,whose economic capacity has already been attenuated by the effects of the perilous Coronavirus pandemic,unambiguously hopeless and visibly restless as regards the next line of action.

Alhaji Uthman said that his tour round the city of Ilorin following the incident left him perplexed and disturbed considering the magnitude of the losses he assessed. He added that he saw nothing but despair and hopelessness on the faces of helpless victims everywhere he went.

He explained that the damages he saw were extremely disturbing,noting that restoring the situation to normalcy would require huge sums of millions that most of the victims cannot afford at this point in time. The community leader also urged well to do individuals to assist the victims with temporary shelters, food and other essential needs to survive the unanticipated situations they have found themselves.

The President condoled with His Royal Highness,the Emir of Ilorin, Alhaji(Dr)Ibrahim Sulu-Gambari, CFR and the good people of the Emirate over the incident. He also sympathised with the victims of the disaster as he urged them to take heart,praying that Allah grant all the constituted authorities and other stakeholders the wherewithal to put smiles on the faces of victims.

National Publicity Secretary,
