According to the statement, the governor also earmarked N1 billion to support victims of flooding in the state.

The sum, Ebiri, stated, is for emergency relief measures to support flood victims in Ahoada West and Ogba/Egbema/ Ndoni local government areas (LGAs) of the state.

He said the gesture is “to enable vulnerable families, particularly in Ahoada West and Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni LGAs, which are the most impacted areas in the state, to cope with the devastating flood water which has inundated homes, farmlands and forced residents of affected communities to relocate to safer places”.

Specifically, Wike said the Permanent Secretary, Special Services Bureau (SSB) in the Office of the Secretary to the Rivers State Government, Dr. George Nwaeke, will serve as the chairman of the Taskforce, while, Mrs. Inime I. Aguma, is the secretary.

Other members of the Taskforce are the Chairman of Ahoada West LGA, Hon. Hope Ikiriko; Chairman of Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni LGA, Hon. Vincent Job; Hon. Chukwuemeka Onowo and the Director of Administration in the Ministry of Special Duties.

All members of the Taskforce are expected to meet with Wike on Thursday at the Rivers State Government House, Port Harcourt.
