The largest local government area in Nigeria is totally devastated by the flood as the people of Southern Ijaw Local government practically lives inside the disaster as no were else to go.
The Community Development Chairman Comr Yogo Okardi Abraham have accused the IOCs,state and federal governments of abandoning them to their fate.
According to the chairman the declaration of provision of relief materials and succour by the state government have not seen since the flood era. Governor Douye Diri has been visiting other flood areas in the state leaving out Oporoma the headquarters of the Southern Ijaw LGA, this is unfair to the people. Even political office holders we voted for during the elections have abandoned us to die by the flood.

Oporoma community as one of the largest registered voters will not vote people who do not care if we die of hunger and diseases imposed on us by the flood. We practically live with dead bodies as no where to bury our dead, even the mortuaries are flooded.
We use this medium to call on the international communities and well meaning spirited Nigerians to come to our aid. Our people die everyday
