All Progressives Congress (APC) in Bauchi State  has commiserated with victims of flood disasters in various parts of the state, especially people in Jama’are and Zaki local government areas , where the party noted, suffered monumental loss in terms of lives and property.

The party in both condolence and sympathy messages to the flood disaster affected communities in the state, joined families of the victims in mournful prayers for God the Almighty to come to their aid while giving them the courage to bear the irreparable loss.    

“It is not only pathetic, but it is human that we join the families of those that loss their lives, loss their properties worth millions of naira, as well as countless number of people whose farmlands were washed away by the flood”, the party said in the message.

The State APC Chairman, Babayo Aliyu Misau at a press briefing in Bauchi Saturday said, “Based on the information available from the state government, about sixteen Local Government Areas of the state were ravaged by floods. We as a party we are praying to Allah to come to the aid of the affected communities”.

Alh. Babayo Misau who spoke through the party’s state publicity secretary, Comrade Sabo Mohammed, however lamented that the warning signals earlier conveyed to the state government by relevant federal agencies was not timely informed the people which, it observed, was the fatal mistake that worsened the flood situation in parts of the state.

Comrade Sabo Mohammed told the press that, “We are very optimistic and confidence the relevant federal agencies such as NEMA and Metrological Agency have long before this time communicated to the Bauchi state government as well as other states to be affected by the floods, but unfortunately because the government of Bauchi state is that kind of government that doesn’t care about the plight of its citizens”.

“That is why we are calling on well-meaning indigenes of the state in their respective positions of responsibilities to come to the aid of the affected areas in our state, particularly we are encouraging the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs not to relent in her efforts to give succor to the teeming populace of Bauchi state irrespective of party affiliations”.

Comrade Sabo said, “So on behalf of the APC family in Bauchi state we are calling on the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management, Hajiya Sadiya Umar Faruk, as well as relevant MDAs to come to the rescue of our citizens who are in dire needs of assistance so as to be able to overcome their plight”.

He also conveyed the Bauchi APC accolade and commendation to President Muhammadu Buhari for the FEC approval last month of August on the reconstruction of Kirfi – Gombe Abba – Dukku federal road which is expected to gulf about N11.6 billion, saying the President dearly loves Bauchi state, and always listens to any programme intended to improve the well-being of Bauchi people.
