Floods: Buhari Has Not Abandoned Daura ― Presidency

The Presidency on Sunday denied claims that President Muhammadu Buhari has abandoned his home town, Daura, Katsina State, currently reeling from the effects of flooding, which occurred there last week.

The Presidency in a statement issued in Abuja on Sunday by presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, noted that Daura community has received relief materials from National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA).

Mallam Shehu also assured that the people will receive additional relief materials.

The statement said: “Contrary to the allegations that President Muhammadu Buhari has turned his back on the people of Daura, we can confirm that pre-assessment relief materials were dispatched to the victims within 48 hours of the floods.

“Ten trailer loads of building materials including zinc, planks and cement, as well as tons of grains, cereals and other edibles, have so far been delivered.

“The flood victims also received blankets and mattresses.

“Materials were delivered to and signed for by stakeholders while the Emir of Daura, Alhaji Umar Faruk Umar welcomed the prompt emergency response from NEMA officials.

“NEMA has equally promised that in line with establishment practices all over the country, as soon as the assessment of the damage to the flood-ravaged communities is reported upon, more food items and building materials would be dispatched.”
