Federal Government has promised to build hostels for the Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, in the 24 states affected by flood. A member of the Presidential Flood Relief Rehabilitation Committee, Ifiok Abia said this while presenting relief materials to flood victims in Uyo, Akwa Ibom state, on Thursday.
Abia also said the government will build 10 solar-powered boreholes for the victims. “Already, work has begun on some of the boreholes in some states while some have even been completed,” Abia stated.
The state's Deputy Governor, Moses Ekpo, commended the federal government for its kind gesture in spite of the economic crisis.
