The Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi, has donated N5 million to victims of flood in Benue state.

No fewer than 24 people have been confirmwd dead from the recent flood in the state, according to the Benue State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA).

Obi announced the donation on Thursday, October 20, when he visited an Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camp currently being occupied by victims of the ravaging flood in the state.

The former governor of Anambra state, who urged the displaced persons to continue to have faith in Nigeria, urged them to remain hopeful that they will return to their homes as soon as possible.

Obi said that, “I wouldn’t have imagined what is going on here but on behalf of the vulnerable children that are here and in other camps, I will start in the little way I can.

“I will donate the sum of N5 million to this cause, and we will go on to see how we can support you.

“I cannot believe this is happening in Nigeria.

“Let’s continue to have faith in Nigeria and remain prayerful to God.

“God will ensure that you go back to your houses and to your villages as soon as possible,” the LP presidential candidate added.

It is worth noting that Obi, on October 19, called on other presidential candidates to abandon their campaigns and join him to help victims of floods across the country.
