Succour came the way of victims of Okpe-Isoko rainstorm, at the weekend, as former secretary to Delta state government, Comrade Ovuozourie Macaulay, donated N400, 000 to help cushion effect of the loss.
He made the donation when he paid a solidarity visit to the palace of Okpe-Isoko monarch, His Royal Highness, Felix Agbabe, Obekeke 1, as well as other victims of the disaster.
Macaulay, who donated N300, 000 to victims, N50, 000 toward executive of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and another N50, 000 to women of the party, called on the government to come to the aid of the victims.
According to him, the rainstorm was not man-made, hence the loss suffered should not be left for the already traumatized victims to wholly shoulder.
He expressed joy over the fact that no life was lost to the rainstorm and appealed to all relevant agencies to see the need to swing into immediate action.
The former Labour Leader was accompanied by former chairman of Isoko North, Hon. Emma Edevor; former commissioner for lands and survey, Patrick Ferife; Isoko North constituency assembly hopeful, Hon. Mike Ogwah, SSA to Governor Okowa, Hon. Daniel Tutumor, amongst others.
In his response, Ovie of Okpe Isoko, HRH Felix Agbabe, commended the effort, describing Macaulay as a leader who has always listened and come to the rescue of Okpe-Isoko people.
He recounted several projects and help which Macaulay has effected in his kingdom, hence he was not too surprised when he was notified of plans by him to visit his kingdom.
The monarch declared that Okpe Isoko will continue to support the winning party, PDP, as well as Comrade Macaulay in his political endeavour.
He also commended Hon. Mike Ogwah for his support and earlier visit and prayed for his political ambition to materialize into victory.
