The Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, Monday, visited communities in Abeokuta which were ravaged by flooding during the heavy downpour in Abeokuta, Ogun State on Saturday.
The communities include: Isale Oja, in Kuto; Ijeun-Titun, and Ekundayo Street, Abeokuta.
The Governor expressed deep emotions, as he viewed the extent of the damage that the flood had caused to houses and business structures.
He informed that he had sent five Commissioners to the scenes to assess the extent of the damage caused by the flood, immediately he got wind of the development.
Abiodun pleaded with leaders of the communities and markets to give the State Government a little time to gather details of affected persons and businesses for them to get the needed assistance.
He said, ” I have directed concerned Commissioners to commence palliative works in the places, pending when a permanent solution would be put in place”
He strongly advised residents to stop disposing waste on waterways, to allow Government’s intervention go a long way and remain permanent.
