IN a bid to reduce the sufferings of flood victims, the Benue Government has planned a joint partnership with the Federal Housing Authority (FHA) to purchase houses to resettle some of the displaced persons in the state.

Meanwhile, the Zonal Coordinator, North-Central Zone, Jos, National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), Mr. Adulsalam Mohammed has disclosed that six councils in Benue State were most affected by the disaster.
