STATEMENT FROM THE GENERAL SECRETARY OF THE PPP
Our party leaders and activists have visited several areas across the country which have been affected by flooding brought about by the unusual spring tides.
We have seen firsthand, the suffering of citizens whose homes are flooded, who are also discomforted and have had their livelihoods disrupted. Many have suffered untold damage to personal and other items and may never recover from the devastation brought about by this unfortunate situation.
We therefore call on the Civil Defense Commission to take immediate measures to bring relief to those that are suffering.
In addition, the party wishes to make public it’s full support for those agencies of the state that are entrusted with the responsibility of bringing necessary relief at this time.
We also wish to express our extreme empathy with those that have been affected.
