President Muhammadu Buhari has denied allegations that he had turned his back on his people in Daura community, Katsina State which was hit by massive floods last week.
The President, in a statement by his Spokesperson, Garba Shehu, said Daura will receive additional assistance from the National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, soon.
The statement added that “Contrary to the allegations that President Muhammadu Buhari has turned his back on the people of Daura, pre-assessment relief materials were dispatched to the victims within 48 hours of the floods.
Ten trailer loads of building materials including zinc, planks and cement, as well as tons of grains, cereals and other edibles have so far been delivered along with blankets and mattresses.
NEMA has equally promised that in line with establishment practices all over the country, as soon as the assessment of the damage to the flood-ravaged communities is reported upon, more food items and building materials would be dispatched.
