Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), will visit states affected by flooding beginning from Tuesday, October 25.
According to a statement by his media aide, Paul Ibe, the tours will afford Atiku to an opportunity to sympathize with flood victims.
Ibe noted that Atiku had supported flood victims in Jigawa, Yobe and Kano in the past.
“The tours will provide the presidential candidate the opportunity to have an on-sight impact assessment of these flooding incidents and give him a veritable window to input those ecological concerns in his policy documents,” Ibe said.
“Recall that the PDP presidential candidate had supported flood victims in Jigawa, Yobe and Kano long before now. He was also the first candidate to speak on the issue and had counselled that persons living around the most vulnerable areas be temporarily evacuated following the alert by the meteorological agency that a further 24 states faced the risk of major flooding,”
Meanwhile, Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress and Peter Obi of the Labour party have donated cash and materials to flood victims in various parts of the country.
