How Honourable Isiaka brought Succour To Constituents ravaged by flood in Ewekoro Local Government Area of Ifo/Ewekoro Federal Constituency.

The Nigerian Meteorological Agency ( NIMET) and different agencies involved with the issuance of forecast and alert for impending rains every  other year had predicted that there would be a lot of concerns on the issue of flooding, mentioning the areas likely to be badly affected, while at the same time, cautioning  that those who are residents in the low plane or flood prone areas should vacate to avoid story that touches the heart.

In like manner, the Management of the Ogun Osun River Basin Development Authourity  had equally warned  people who are likely to be vulnerable to move to a safer place.

Thus, it was not a surprise in this year, from around May to Septemeber and even October when the areas already predicted began to experience great consequences of the heavy downpour being experienced across the length and breadth of the state and the country in general.

In one of the heavy rains that has characterised this period, some  residents  under Ewekoro Local Government had a nasty bite of the ugly incidence due to the rains that fell  on May 1st this year that left  several residents of  Egbado/ Ajegunle and Owowo under Ewekoro Local Government  homeless because of the havoc wreaked within their  neighbourhood. 

As a responsible Lawmaker, who is ever ready to attend to the plights of  his people, Honourable Ibrahim Ayokunle  isiaka  quickly intervened  by providing  relieve materials to cushion the effects. 

The havoc wreaked  by the rains were  so much that some residents  lost  fortunes!  Calamities ranging from completely blown off roofs and collapsed walls thereby, rendering many people homeless. 

On 11th of October, succour came from the man who  at no time ever abandoned his people, Honourable  Isiaka came to the rescue of the affected people through distribution of relieve  materials from the National Emergency Management  Agency, (NEMA), which were  duly facilitated and sponsored by him. 

Bulk of the materials were building materials such as; bags of cement, roofing sheets, nails, planks among others, and cash sum to alleviate the sufferings.

One of the residents who was badly hit spoke on the  good gesture, even as he openly appreciated Honourable  Ibrahim Isiaka for the milk of human  kindness flowing in him .

Mr Oluwagbemiga Ajala from Egado/ Ajegunle under Ewekoro Local Government whose house was completely destroyed was full of praises to Honourable  Isiaka for coming to the aid of people like him.

His words " The rains of May 1st wreaked a lot of havoc at Ajegunle and we were called to come for relieve materials. I hereby,  thank the Member of the House of Representatives, Honourable Ibrahim  Isiaka for the good gestures and I also wish to thank our  Kabiyesi, Oba Oniyitan for his intervention. Consequently, I also wish to appreciate the  Chairman of the local government  and all those that are involved in this gesture. For somebody like me, who lost a whole house, I had thought that was the end, but with this relieve materials,  hope became a reality and I can't thank them enough. 
However, let it be placed on record that no one collected a dime from us to get this relief materials and we did not lobby or pay anyone to have our names included. I was not even aware, it was around 2 am that I got a call from our  Kabiesi Oniyitan to report here and be a partaker of this good gesture. We are eternally grateful and I want to pray for Honourable  Ibrahim Ayokunle  Isiaka  for being a man with a lot of concerns for the vulnerable, especially members of his constituency. We are very grateful. God will not leave nor forsake him".
