Dickson condoles with flood victims

The Governor of Bayelsa State, Seriake Dickson, has sympathised with victims of the flood that ravaged parts of Yenagoa, Bayelsa State capital last Thursday, describing the incident as sad and unfortunate.

Dickson in a statement on Saturday by his Chief Press Secretary, Daniel Iworiso-Markson, attributed the incident to the state resting below sea level and surrounded by water.

He, however, advised Bayelsans to observe best practices by cleaning their surroundings always, particularly drainages to allow the free flow of water when it rains.

While calling on Bayelsans to also stop the indiscriminate dumping of refuse, the governor advised them to stop building on the right of way.

The governor added that he had directed relevant agencies of government to clear the blocked areas caused by the flooding and urged residents to bear with government.
