The Minister for Humanitarian Affairs, Social Development and Disaster Management, Sadiya Umar – Faruk, yesterday during the Federal Executive Council meeting said the ministries involved in providing relief materials to victims of the floods were ready to deliver.
Umar – Faruk also said the ministry has sent grains to states on flood red alert.
“To say that the ministries were not prepared for this emergency or this disaster that was about to happen, is not correct, she said.
“Because we have repositioned our warehouses to take stock of deployment as approved by His Excellency,Mr Presidentto be handed over to the ministry and we have deployed these grains to the respective states that we expect this flood is going to happen.
“So, to say that we were not prepared is really not correct. We did our best and we are still doing what we’re supposed to do”, the minister said.
