Senator James Manager and Mr. Julius Pondi, House of Representatives member for Burutu federal constituency, have assured the people of Tuomo community in Burutu Local Government Area of Delta State of quick government response to the erosion devastating the coastal community.
Senator Manager stated this when he, alongside Pondi and top members of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, visited Tuomo community for an-on-the-spot assessment.
The lawmaker, who called on the Federal Government and all relevant agencies such as the National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, to come to the aid of the community, maintained that the natural disaster could wash off the entire community.
Also speaking, Julius Pondi expressed shock at the level of the devastation in the community, saying he had directed the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, and the contractor handling the Tuomo community shoreline protection project to furnish him with all relevant documents on the project for proper assessment.
Pondi sympathised with the people of Tuomo community over the natural disaster, noting that he will move a motion on the floor of the House to draw the attention of the Federal Government to the community for immediate action by relevant authorities.
