Lokoja – A business mogul and chieftain of People’s Democratic Party, PDP, in Kogi State, Chief Jide Omokore, yesterday, donated N50 million to the state government just as Unifoam Nigeria Limited also presented 100 mattresses to the government for distribution to flood victims in the state.
The State governor, Captain Idris Wada (rtd), who received both donations, said money and other items received would be used to re-build, resettle and repair the houses of the victims.
Wada further said that his administration remained committed to the judicious utilization of all the donations received for the flood victims.
