Flagbearer for the Labour Party in the 2023 presidential election, Mr Peter Obi has lent his voice to the cries of millions of persons in Ogbaru LGA of Anambra State, who were recently displaced by flood.
In a statement via his Facebook page, the former Anambra governor said he is saddened about the plight of those suffering, and crying out over the recent flood disaster in the area.

He appealed to NEMA, SEMA, and other relevant agencies, as well as charity organizations, and government, to come to the rescue of the people of Ogbaru.
Above all, Obi emphasized that at this moment, the people need shelter, clothing and food.
