The Anambra Central Senatorial candidate of Young Progressive Party (YPP) for the forthcoming general elections, High Chief Dr Chinedu Anthony Umeadi, has sympathized with the people of Ugbene, Ugbenu, Obaofemmili in Awka North and International Building Materials Market, Ogidi over the flood menace that has taken over their homes.
The flood also destroyed businesses and properties worth billions of naira thereby rendering them homeless, while sending some of the victims out of business.
Dr. Umeadi who described the flood incident as pathetic and terrible however, charged the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) to come to the rescue of those affected communities and markets within Anambra Central Senatorial District.
He begged NEMA and SEMA to provide succour to the affected victims as well as finding a lasting solution to the ugly situation to forestall a reoccurrence in the future.
Dr Umeadi was also of the opinion that the government representatives from the zone at the National Assembly and State Assembly levels have a lot of contributions to make towards cushioning the excruciating effects of the ravaging flood on the Anambra Central indigenes there to help them return to their normal lives and businesses within the nearest possible time.
