“I offer my heartfelt condolences to every one and to all residents who reside at Mayfair, Damico, Asherifa, Ede road, Aladanla, amongst other areas where houses were submerged and properties destroyed at the areas affected by the rain”.
Olatunbosun noted that, “flood incident is rather unfortunate and devastating in the sense that, despite the huge resources channelled towards roads expansion in the state led by the Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, we are still witnessing such painful occurrence”.
He stated further that, “though, this flood is between man and nature. But there are lot we can do to prevent future occurrence. Let us team up together and make Ife great again”.
