@comradeWF_Fred; This is where government at all levels & private individuals need to come in to aide the sufferings of the people & of course international donor agents. But buhari government is so secretive such that you see only little of this flood impact on traditional media.

@kulevie; So glad he has been brought home. Non should use these rout & Government should do well to make food/fuel available to reduce the panic.

@chi_omalicha15; God, this is so heart wrenching. Government should please do something about this floods as soon as possible

@OnosSpeaks; Please you guys should do a detailed report on the flood in Bayelsa on so that the world can see what’s going on since our media outlets have choosing to be blind.

@oforitseno; Hope he is getting adequate medical attention? AkpevweOghene

@just_omeck; It’s crazy how much this state receives as allocation yet the previous and current state did absolutely nothing to prevent this.

@comradeWF_Fred; What do you prevent? This flood isn’t ordinary rain water or seasonal flooding water you can clear drains. A whole vaste mass of land cutting across almost half Nigeria fully submerged in water & it’s encroaching in other areas as we speak. The water is Dam water from Cameroun.
