Speaking further on the allegation Mr. Shehu described the allegation of President Buhari neglecting his Daura community in Katsina State, which was hit by massive floods as “false and untrue”
Contrary to the allegations that President Buhari had 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, Umar Faruk Umar, welcomed the prompt emergency response from NEMA officials.”
According to Shehu, NEMA has also 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.
Naija News recalls that this is not the first time that the president will be accused of neglecting his people his Daura community in Katsina State. According to this earlier report, the leaders of the Daura community has accused the president that his absence has led to little supply of electricity.
