Floods - Govt Funds for Sokoto, KebbiNigeria
President Goodluck Jonathan has approved the release of N1.75 billion as Federal Government grants to Sokoto and Kebbi states governments as part of FG's assistance to alleviate the sufferings of victims of the flood disaster that ravaged the two states two weeks ago.
The grants are to be expended on reconstruction of damaged roads, culverts and bridges; scour inspection and survey of piers and abutments of the severely eroded bridges across the Sokoto River; and urgent after-flood protection study of the affected areas, a statement by the Presidents' spokesman Ima Niboro said yesterday.
The President urged the state governments to ensure judicious use of the grants to alleviate the plight of the flood victims.
Jonathan had inspected the affected communities and directed the Ministry of Works to collaborate with military engineers to construct emergency bridges to aid the rescue and movement of displaced in the two states.
