The president of Isoko Youths Assembly, Worldwide, Comrade Matthew Olomu, has called on good spirited individuals not to relent in the process of funding the group’s initiative to help flood victims in the two Isoko local government areas of the state.
Olomu made the call when he led his executives, BOT Chairman/ Grand Patron, Comrade Paul Agbama and other members of the BOT to give account and deliver food items and cash raised to assist flood victims in the council areas.

Olomu said that to ensure transparency and accountability, the group decided to call a meeting to render their stewardship of how funds raised were spent.
“May we please remind us that during the peak of the flood that inflicted hardship on our parents and siblings, IYA embark on Isoko Youth Assembly (Flood Initiative), then set the pace to donate some thousands of naira to support flood victims.
“In the light of this that we deem it fit to render stewardship by way of coming to present the cash donations to the affected persons displaced by flood in Isoko nation.
The youth group, however, called on other good spirited Isoko leaders to assist the flood initiative being championed by IYA and some stakeholders.
“We also want to use this medium to assure all flood displaced persons that we are with them as we share in their pains and they shouldn’t be discouraged about life.
“We therefore thank everyone who contributed toward the support for the flood initiative to reduce the stress of the victims.
