Residents of Umueze in Ibusa town, Delta State today called on the Federal government and Delta State Governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa to come to their rescue and save them from the perennial flood which has rendered them homeless.
One of the residents, Ogechukwu Okonkwor who spoke to The Guardian noted that the flood was as a result of the NDDC contractor drainage system constructed poorly without proper channeling.
According to him, “This bad job is now causing Umueze people so much pain. Many would be rendered homeless if something is not done urgently.
“You don’t construct drainage where there are existing Houses over the years.”
Another resident who prefers to remain anonymous said: “The contractor must be made to face the law. Things should be done right in Delta. We are tired of shoddy jobs.”
It was gathered that the flood was triggered by heavy rainfall in Delta State today.
