It is no longer news that some parts of Makurdi, the capital of Benue state have been wrecked down as a result of incessant flooding which rendered so many people homeless including an aged man who almost lost his life at the time his house was involved in the wreck.
Benue “loud speakers” have in various capacities have called on the government to come to the rescue of these displaced persons which resulted in so many responses including the donation by Nigeria’s award winning artiste, Innocent Idibia popularly known as Tu Baba, alongside Prince Ayo, CEO Mad Dragon Entertainment, Awa of Awastudios and the fatherly visit of the Vice President of Nigeria, Professor Yemi Osinbajo.
But the striking one of them all is that of the popular MC and gospel music artiste, Y-Bits who donated a house to an aged man. According to the story he posted about the man, he was alone in the house sleeping when his building collapsed but he escaped unhurt. Y-Bits thought that he needed help urgently because he had nowhere to turn to.
As at the time of publishing this post, the old man’s house is being built and in no distant time, he will be sleeping in his warm room again.
This is one out of many who need helping hands at the moment, we call on all well meaning Nigerians to lend a hand of fellowship to those who are displaced and distressed. This is true religion.
Below are photos taken at the construction of the house progresses.
