The Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun, has directed concerned Commissioners to commence palliative works in places ravaged by flooding during the torrential rains that fell in the State Capital on Saturday.

Governor Abiodun who made this known on Monday during a visit to the affected areas, said palliative works will be done pending when a permanent solution would be put in place.

Affected communities include; Isale Oja, in Kuto; Ijeun-Titun, and Ekundayo Street, Abeokuta.

The Governor noted that he had sent five Commissioners to the scenes for them to assess the extent of the damage caused by the floods, immediately he got wind of the development.

Abiodun expressed deep emotions, as he viewed the extent of the damage that the flood had caused to houses and business structures.

He however pleaded with leaders of the communities and markets to give the State Government a little time to gather details of affected persons and businesses for them to get the needed assistance.

The Governor advised residents to stop disposing waste on waterways, to allow Government’s intervention go a long way and remain permanent.
