The Lokoja Camp

Some have described it as “baby boom”, as a similar scenario was also witnessed at the Lokoja flood camp. However, these incidents have presented us with an opportunity to appreciate the rate at which Nigerians are procreating; they also go a very long way in justifying the president’s plan to introduce stiffer family planning measures.

It has been reported that the three camps opened for flood victims in Makurdi, Benue State have produced no fewer than 14 new babies since they were opened. In the mean time, Vanguard Newspaper has gathered from mothers of the new born babies that they were all doing well as proper medical attention was being extended to the nursing mothers and their babies in the camps.

Also, in a welcome development, the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control, NAFDAC, on Tuesday, donated 700 bags of rice, household items, drugs and beverages valued at over N20 million to victims.

NAFDAC’s DG, Dr. Paul Orhii, who made the donation after a tour of the flood sites and camps, commiserated with the victims and urged them to live in peace with one another. He was accompanied by North Central Zonal Coordinator of NEMA, Mr. Abdulsalam Mohammed and the state SEMA boss, Adikpo Agbatse.
