The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has received relief materials from the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, (NiDCOM) and the Nigerian-American Public Affairs Committee (NAPAC) to help flood victims in Bayelsa State to cushion the effects of the disaster.

The relief materials which were presented to NEMA on behalf of NiDCOM Chairman/CEO, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, by the Secretary to the Commission, Sule Yakubu Bassi, include over 200 units of treated mosquito nets and 100 cartons of noodles.

Bassi revealed that there are over 17 million Nigerians in the diaspora, stressing that President Muhammadu Buhari’s 3 Point Diaspora Agenda, include: “Diaspora are our ambassadors; diaspora must excel in whatever they do and diaspora must never forget home by giving back.”

While receiving the relief materials, NEMA’s Director of Relief and Rehabilitation Department, Alhassan Nuhu, thanked NiDCOM and NAPAC for their continued support and singular show of solidarity to the flood victims and Nigeria in general.

He assured that the relief materials will be immediately moved to Yenegoa for onward distribution to the flood victims.

Nuhu added that NAPAC’s zeal to assist their compatriots in need is far bigger than any relief materials provided, saying, “come and eat is even sweeter than eating.”

He also urged other well-meaning individuals and associations to support the government’s effort in reaching out to those who are most vulnerable in terms of flood and other disasters.
