Amidst the current rise in water levels around riverine communities in Anambra State, the Wife of the Governor,Mrs Nonye Soludo has asked residents of affected areas who are still within their homes to immediately move up to higher grounds to avoid being caught up in the ravage.
Mrs Soludo, who made the call in a statement released in Awka, said that she is deeply concerned about the damage that could result from the flood, which has already made life difficult for the affected people.
She said that with water already creeping into homes, schools, religious places, markets and other related places, those who are still procrastinating must prioritize the safety of lives and move up to higher grounds or designated holding camps.
The Governor’s wife explained that while the State and federal governments are already mobilizing response measures to accommodate and take care of those that have been affected by the natural disaster, community and religious leaders, political representatives and other critical stakeholders, should as a matter of oneness, love and compassion, open up their homes or create temporal homes to contain those running away from the incident.
