Victims of the recent flood that occurred in Bachaka town of Gudu local government area (LGA) of Sokoto State on Monday received a donation of relief materials worth N5 million from the member that represents Gudu/Tangaza Federal Constituency, Isa Kalanjeni.
The relief materials donated to alleviate the suffering of the victims include 300 bags of cement, 30 bundles of roofing sheets, rubber mats, plastic buckets and kettles.
“I visited to personally commiserate with you in your most trying times. My donation is not in any way a compensation for your huge losses because only God is capable of compensating you,” he said.
Calling on the victims to regard the disaster as an act of God, Kalanjeni disclosed that he had reported the incident to the House Committee on Disasters.
“I have also written to the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) for its action,” he added.
District Head of Bachaka, Alhaji Aminu Abdullahi, commended the lawmaker and promised that the items would be distributed judiciously.
On behalf of all other beneficiaries, Ibrahim Gatari and Sambo Abdullahi also commended Kalanjeni and promised to make proper use of the materials.
