Victims of Iragon, Thogli, Iragbo and Kemu communities, in Badagry Local Government Area, Lagos State were on Saturday given relief materials by the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA).

According to the Director General of the agency, Mohammadu Mohammed, who was represented by the Chief of General Services, Adenike Ogunkunle, the Federal Government had approved door to door direct distribution of the relief materials to the affected people.

“I wish to inform you that the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiyah Umar Farouq, monitored the reports about the devastating windstorm that wreaked havoc on the properties of the residents of Badagry communities.

“On the instruction of the Minister, an assessment by staff of NEMA was conducted to determine the extent of damage; and this assessment includes enumeration of persons and properties affected by the disaster,” he said.

He advised the beneficiaries of the relief materials to make judicious use what was provided for them.

Meanwhile the lawmaker representing Badagry Federal Constituency, Rep. Babatunde Hunpe, commended the agency for its quick response to the victims of the rainstorm in the communities.

Hunpe said that the action of the agency had shown that the government had not forgotten the victims.

“My people are very happy today to receive the cash and items brought by NEMA to assist them after the incident.

“I want to use this opportunity to tell my people that this is the beginning of good things coming to Badagry.

“As you have noted that the government has started the palliative work on our road, soon real reconstruction will follow as well.

“I want to use this opportunity to thank the federal government for fulfilling the promise to my people in the area of infrastructure.

“In my own way, I will continue to liaise with relevant bodies to ensure that my constituency enjoys the dividend of democracy,” he said.

The lawmaker commended his constituents for supporting the present administration of President Muhammadu Buhari’s programme and policies.

Hunpe also commended the Lagos State Government for its quick response through LASEMA to assist the victims of the rainstorm.

He urged them to keep their faith in the All Progressives Congress (APC) programmes in the state under the administration of Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
