Read the statement belowI have received with great concern reports of the flooding in Benue State, displacing, from early estimates, more than 100,000 people.

My sympathies go to the Government and people of Benue State.I assure that the Federal Government will make available ALL the support and assistance needed by the Benue State Government and the affected communities.
