They decried the inaccessibility of their homes due to the high level of floodwater in the community while calling on the Delta State Governor, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa to come to their aid and address the issue of perennial flooding in the community.

They also extended the call to the National Emergency Maintenance Agency (NEMA) and other relevant agencies to come to their assistance.
