Flood has been taking its toll on Benue people and the opposition party feels the government has not done enough.

Now, it has a piece of advice for the government.

The party is asking the state and federal government to be more proactive.

In a statement, the party asked all agencies of government whose duty it was to provide emergency services to do so promptly to save lives.

“We call on both the state and Federal Government to be more proactive by taking adequate steps to put in place mechanisms that will curtail such level of disaster in other flood-prone areas across the country.

“We pray for the souls of all those that lost their lives to rest in perfect peace and condole with affected families to bear this irreparable loss,” the party said in a statement by the party’s Head, Publicity Division Administration, Chinwe Nnorom, for the National Publicity Secretary, on Sunday in Abuja.

Flood ravaged communities in Benue last week, where villages, farmlands and food storage facilities were washed away and many displaced.

Two camps have already been opened in Makurdi to ensure that the displaced persons have shelter and receive assistance, as chairmen of the 23 local government areas were directed to use some primary schools as designated camps for affected victims in their areas.
