Superstar singer 2Face Idibia has donated relief materials to victims of the flood in Makurdi, Benue state, which left thousands homeless.
He said that his prompt response to the plight of the displaced persons was to let them know that he, his family and friends were solidly behind them.
“The gesture is aimed at giving hope to the displaced persons and to ameliorate their hardship,” he said.
He also assured the people that this was just the beginning and that he was willing to do more for them.
“But I will wait to see how far our efforts and intervention of government go for some time.
“More materials are coming on Sunday, but these are my people and I am deeply concerned by what is going on.”
He assured the displaced persons that he and his friends would send more relief materials to them to cushion their sufferings.
While urging the IDPs not to loose hope, Idia promised that they would not be forsaken by individuals, groups and the government.
The wife of the Benue Governor, Mrs Eunice Ortom, commended Idibia for coming to the aid of the displaced persons.
She said that the state was proud of him for the humanitarian assistance he had been rendering to people across the globe.
She said that the materials donated by him and others would help to ameliorate the sufferings and bring succour to the IDPs.
A representative of Fidelity Bank, Mr Emmanuel Aduku, said the bank had donated relief materials worth N1 million to alleviate the sufferings of the IDPs.
