The flood that has ravaged most parts of Nigeria and almost the entire Bayelsa State has taken over the Otuoke residence of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, in Ogbia Local Government Area of the State.

During his visit to the hometown of the ex-President to assess the situation on Friday, Governor Duoye Diri of Bayelsa State lamented the level of destruction caused by what he described as an “attack by natural disaster” on the livelihood of Bayelsans.

Governor Diri, who revealed that Otuoke, which is the host community of a Federal University, had been submerged and most of the locals displaced, including Jonathan, assured the people of the commitment of the State Government to put in place machinery to provide relief materials and medical assistance to victims of the flood.

While empathising with Jonathan who he said is now also internally displaced as a result of the flood, Governor Diri also visited the former President’s mother, Eunice Jonathan.

He said, “As we have seen in other local government areas in the state, we have come to Ogbia and parts of Southern Ijaw today. I had been to Ayama-Ijaw and Azikoro communities in Yenagoa, which is also badly hit.

“Now I am in Ogbia, precisely at the residence of the former president of Nigeria, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan. You can see the degree of destruction here in Otuoke. The water current is as if there is a river here.

“This is what I have been saying. Bayelsa is attacked by natural disasters. The whole premises of our former president and the community is under attack. And this is where you also have the Federal University. This situation makes the former president an IDP.”

“To our citizens, particularly in Ogbia local government, I came to see things for myself in Otuoke and to bring you hope. I came to also let you know that you are not alone in these trying times that we are going through in our state.

“We have in place machinery that is going around the state in terms of relief materials and medicines. The Ministry of Health is fully mobilized for that and I am sure they will be here in no distant time.
