Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has appointed 28,000 Special Assistants for political units.
A statement by the media aide to the Governor, Kelvin Ebiri, said the appointment takes immediate effect.
This is coming less than 24 hours after the governor appointed 14,000 special advisers for the political units and 319 ward Liaison Officers.
The governor also appointed 40 local government area Liaison Officers.
The governor, who empathised with the flood victims, also set up a task force to coordinate the distribution of relief materials to the affected communities.
The six-man task force was headed by the Permanent Secretary, Special Services Bureau (SSB), Dr George Nwaeke.
Other members included Mrs Inime Aguma (Secretary); the Chairman of Ahoada West LGA, Mr Hope Ikiriko; the Chairman of Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni LGA, Vincent Job; and the Director of Administration, Ministry of Special Duties, Mr Chukwuemeka Onowu.
The members of the task force were, however, directed to meet with Governor Wike on October 13.
