The commission will examine the damage and respond appropriately, he added, so the governorship election in the state would go ahead as planned despite the flood calamity.

That the flood had spared no lives was something he was overjoyed about.

“This isn’t your typical stop. After the floods on May 24th, we are here to assess the damage to our facilities.

I arrived here with the Director of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) due to the destruction of several computers, and I would be accompanied by the Federal Controller of Works (FCOW) to assist with the water issues surrounding the INEC headquarters in Benin.

The damaged facilities will be fixed before the election, he promised.
