Hon. Abbas Tajudeen, the Speaker of the House, has conveyed his condolences for the loss of life in the flood that hit the Kosofe Federal Constituency in Lagos State.
The Speaker’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Musa Krishi, released a statement in which he voiced his alarm at the fact that the flood had forced more than 2,000 people from their homes.
According to the kuryaloaded, a school in the Ikosi-Isheri LCDA of Lagos State was flooded and subsequently converted into a 500-room residential structure known as Agboye Estate, Oduntan Street, Ketu.
On Saturday, after hours of rain drenched most of the state, the building collapsed.
In light of this, the Speaker urged the proper federal and state authorities to act immediately to prevent a recurrence of the situation.
Abbas demanded that the NEMA (National Emergency Management Agency) act quickly to help the displaced people.
The displaced people who are from Hon. Kafilat Ogbara’s district have been welcomed into her home, and the Speaker has praised her for her generosity.
Reportedly in response to the disaster, Ogbara gave her constituency office, a 10-bedroom duplex with separate boys’ quarters, to house the displaced families and children.
The Speaker expressed his delight at hearing about Ogbara’s generous act and praised the lawmaker for setting a good example.
