Former President, Goodluck Jonathan, paid a visit to and sympathized with communities affected by the flood in Bayelsa State, including his hometown, Otuoke.
He shared pictures from his visit on his Facebook page on Thursday.
Jonathan sympathized with the victims of the flood and urged citizens and humanitarian organisations to help the victims.
He shared, “I sympathise with the victims of this year’s flood across many states of the federation who have lost loved ones and properties worth millions.
“The worsening humanitarian crisis in the affected states calls for urgent action and collaboration by all stakeholders.
“I am touched by the dire situation in some of the affected states, especially my home State,
“Bayelsa where almost all the local government areas are submerged in water and the East-West Road section leading to the State has become impassable, creating a scarcity of food and essential commodities.”
