“Last two weeks, the State House of Assembly came up with a resolution under matters of public importance, calling on the state government to, as a matter of urgency, come to the aid and rescue of our people that were ravaged by flood.

“The unfortunate incident (flood) did not only happen in Toto Local Government but it also happened in Nassarawa, Doma as well as Awe local government areas of the state and in some states of the federation.
