The Federal Government has donated relief materials to victims of Daura community in Katsina State.

The flood victims will also be receiving additional assistance from the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA).

In a statement by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, says, “Contrary to the allegations that President Muhammadu Buhari has turned his back on the people of Daura, we can confirm that pre-assessment relief materials were dispatched to the victims within 48 hours of the floods.

“Ten trailer loads of building materials including zinc, planks and cement, as well as tons of grains, cereals and other edibles have so far been delivered.

“The flood victims also received blankets and mattresses”.

Mr Shehu said that the materials were delivered to and signed for by stakeholders while the Emir of Daura, Umar Faruk Umar welcomed the prompt emergency response from NEMA officials.

According to him, NEMA has promised that in line with establishment practices all over the country, as soon as the assessment of the damage to the flood-ravaged communities is reported upon, more food items and building materials would be dispatched.
