Floods: Peter Obi Visits Bayelsa

The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi on Saturday visited Governor Duoye Diri of Bayelsa State in Yenagoa, in continuation of his tour to sympathise with victims of floods across Nigeria.

Recall that Obi had on Thursday visited flood affected communities in Benue State to commiserate with victims.

The former Anambra governor had urged the Federal Government to be proactive in mitigating the effects of devastating floods across the country.

He also asked his counterparts in other parties to suspend their campaigns and join him to help victims of floods in the country.

Floods had recently ravaged parts of Nigeria, with the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) saying that about 2.5 million persons were affected and over 603 persons killed by the flooding caused by torrential rainfall of late.
