Humanitarian Minister flags off distribution Tuesday

Gov commends FG, Kwara federal lawmakers for support

Kwara State Government has received various relief materials from the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) for victims of rainstorms in parts of the state, following efforts by Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq and the federal lawmakers from the state.

This comes barely three weeks after the Governor visited the NEMA headquarters to seek urgent support for the victims.

In a meeting with the Governor mid-September, the NEMA DG AVM Muhammadu Muhammed (Rtd) had promised to urgently treat the request.

In a letter dated 5th October 2020, addressed to the Governor and copied to Senator Ibrahim Oloriegbe (Kwara Central), NEMA announced the approval of some relief materials for the victims of the incident across Ilorin West, Ilorin East, Ilorin South, Asa and Ifelodun local government areas of the state.

The letter was signed by NEMA's Ag Director, Relief and Rehabilitation Dr Onimode Bandele.

Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development Hajia Sadiya Umar Farouk meanwhile will visit Kwara State on Tuesday to flag off the distribution of the (NEMA) relief materials, according to a statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor Rafiu Ajakaye.

The statement listed the relief materials to be distributed include 3,844 Bags of Rice (12.5kg); 3,844 Bags of Beans (25kg); 3,844 Bags of Maize (12.5kg); 384 Kegs of Vegetable Oil; 641 Cartons of Seasoning; 320 Cartons of Tinned Tomatoes; 192 Bags of Salt; 7,000 Pieces of Mattresses; 7,000 Pieces of Wax Prints; 7,000 Pieces of Mosquito Nets; 7,000 Pieces of Nylon Mats; 7,000 Pieces of Blankets; 4,500 Pieces of Ceiling Boards; 4,500 Bags of Cement; 4,500 Bundles of Roofing Sheets; 1,500 Packets of Zinc Nails; and 500 Bags of 3 Nails.

"The Governor is very grateful to the Federal Government for coming to the aid of our people in record time. He specifically thanks Mr. President, the Chief of Staff to the President, the Honourable Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and the Director General of NEMA for their kind support for the state . The Governor similarly commends the three senators and the House of Representatives members from the state for their efforts and patriotic roles in joining him to speak up for Kwarans in distress, culminating in the delivery of the relief materials," the statement added.
