President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday assured families impacted by flooding in several communities in Jigawa State of timely support from the Federal Government.

While commiserating with families who lost loved ones, farmlands, means of livelihood and property in the ravaging floods in the State, President Buhari directed the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) and other relevant government agencies to urgently assess the situation in the affected areas with a view to providing the needed humanitarian supplies.

A statement by the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the President, Mr Garba Shehu said Buhari also commended the prompt response by the Jigawa State government just as he expressed solidarity with them in their difficult time, assuring that the Federal Government will deploy the much-needed assistance as required.

The President said he would continue to follow very closely reports of flood situation across the country, and ensure that relevant Federal agencies are well prepared to respond to such disasters and mitigate associated risks.
