Commiserating with the victims on their losses, Pirah said: ’We all know that we are in very difficult and challenging times but Governor Ifeanyi Okowa has still gone out of his way to do this. So, they need to bear with us and manage and put what they have received into judicious use.

‘’This is a continuous exercise. We have a lot of requests; we have also visited lots of disaster sites and those requests are before the government. We will continually identify with these victims.
