Barr. Caleb Manasseh Mutfwang, the governor of Plateau State, has expressed his deepest condolences to those impacted by the recent flood tragedy that wrecked devastation on Angwan Rogo, Naraguta, Apata, and other towns in the State’s Jos North Local Government Area.
In a statement of compassion, Governor Mutfwang expressed his sympathies to the relatives of the deceased and wished those who had been injured a speedy recovery.
He asked the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) and the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) to examine the requirements of the affected localities as soon as possible and to give aid to the impacted families.
Governor Mutfwang emphasised the significance of ethical construction methods, advising against the construction of homes in flood-prone areas and the incorrect disposal of waste in drainage systems, which impedes the free flow of water.
He urged every state citizen to take the effort to keep their neighbourhoods clean, especially in places where obstructions to water flow could occur.
Assuring them of the government’s commitment to enhancing citizens’ quality of life, Governor Mutfwang expressed his condolences to the close relatives of the deceased and the locals in Jos North Local Government Area.
He emphasised how crucial it is for localities to identify environmental risks and work with the government to find collaborative solutions.
