NEMA begins distribution of relief materials to 13,000 flood victims in Gombe State

The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has started giving aid to the 13,299 homes in Gombe State that would be impacted by the flood disaster in 2022.

The governor thanked the federal government for its assistance and urged recipients to use the gifts wisely. The governor was represented by the secretary to the state government.

According to NEMA’s Chief Administrative Officer, as part of the Special National Economic and Livelihood Emergency Intervention (SNELEI), both food (such as rice, beans, and sorghum) and non-food items (such as sewing machines and grinding machines) have been delivered.

The flood of 2022 significantly damaged 33 settlements in the state, and the executive secretary of the Gombe State Emergency Management Agency expressed gratitude for the assistance.

Mr. Adamu Jibril, one of the beneficiaries, commended the federal government for its participation while emphasising the negative effects the items will have on the wellbeing of their neighbourhood.
