Flood: Cleric accuses FG of fire brigade approach


BENIN CITY – THE General Overseer of the Omega Fire Ministries, Apostle Suleman, yesterday, regretted that Nigerians are suffering the unfortunate disaster caused by flooding and urged the Federal Government to always sensitize Nigerians on warnings from the ecological department in order to avoid “fire brigade approach in future.”

The man of God who also raised an alarm that his Church located along Benin-Auchi road, is being threatened by the flood, said government had failed in safe guiding the lives and property of its citizens and lamented that lack of sensitisation had caused Nigerians their property and homes.

He said: “We have a government that doesn’t react on issues until it hit them directly. So insensitivity is a major diarrhea that afflicts the Federal Government. Government did nothing to the flooding issue because we watch when those in the ecological department predicted this disaster two years ago. We have this emergency approach to issues and that is a problem.”
