A stalwart of the Peoples Democratic Party in Osun State, Dr Akin Ogunbiyi has identified with residents of Osogbo who were rendered homeless and those who lost their valuable properties in Wednesday evening downpour that ravaged the state capital.
The founder of “Idera de Movement”, in a statement by his Press Secretary, Ismail Afolabi, Saturday, expressed concern over the huge loss and advocated for a social intervention for the victims.
He groused: “the two-hour downpour affected electrical installations and led to a blackout in Osogbo. It also shattered residential buildings at Oke-Baale, Gbonmi, Isale-Osun, Kelebe, Ofatedo, Igbona and Oke Onitea, among other areas, while shops and places of worship were also destroyed. No doubt, this is a terrible experience for the residents of the areas.”
Calling for actions, the PDP leader stated further, “whereas, I am delighted to realise that no life was lost, I am deeply touched by the resultant loss of properties and other valuables. I am worried and feel concerned about the plight of the victims. I identify with them and strongly appeal to the state government and other concerned authorities to be alive to their social responsibility.”
“On our path, we pray that the Almighty God forestall a recurrence of the unpleasant incident. We also urge every member of “Idera de Movement” as well as those who share in our vision to comfort the afflicted to endeavour to support the victims.”
“I strongly believe that alone will can do so little, but together, we can do a lot. Every spirited Nigerian and good people of Osun should come together to confront this challenge so that we can speedily bring succour to our loved ones in the affected areas.”
