As the flood which ravaged coastal communities in Delta State continues to recede, Delta State Governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa has assured displaced Deltan that they would be resettled.
Okowa who went on a return visit to the holding camps to see firsthand the state of affairs of the displaced, promised that plans were already underway for their resettlement.
The governor who visited the camps in Patani, Patani local government area on Wednesday expressed satisfaction with the state of affairs in the camp.
“I am happy that those who are in the Camps are happy and living as members of one family.”
“For obvious reasons, we will not disclose our plans to resettle our people in their different communities, but, I can tell you that is the next stage we are preparing seriously for, because, the flood is receding.
“There is no complain in the Camp, the people are well catered for and those who are in the impacted communities but, did not move to the Camps are still receiving food items.”
“You heard the students confirm that they were always fed before resuming for class at 8 am; that is very good because, the children are well engaged in educational activities while in the camp, so, they will not loose much academically,” he said.
Chairman of Patani local government area, Mr Perez Omoun conducted Governor Okowa round the camp which was well fitted with medical facilities and personnel.
