The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA) in Nigeria has restated its commitment to providing humanitarian assistance to victims of flood and other forms of disaster in the country.

The UN Organisation made the commitment when Mr Trond Jensen, Head, UNOCHA, Nigeria, led a team on a visit to the Director-General, National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) on Monday in Abuja.

Jensen, who decried the devastating situation of flood victims in Nigeria, also commended the agency for its prompt response in providing succour to the affected persons.

He said the organisation would continue to track the contributions of UN member states to the flood situation to ensure that such contributions reached places where they are most needed.

On his part, Mr Mustapha Ahmed, Director-General, NEMA, appreciated the team for the visit and for its continuous committment to supporting the country with humanitarian assistance.

Ahmed said that the agency had so far deployed its emergency response assets to various states to conduct life saving first aid and support vulnerable population that had been affected by this year’s flooding.
