This was revealed by the Chairman, Rice Farmers Association Nigeria, (RIFAN), Bayelsa State, Mr. Ezekiel Ogbianko.

Ogbianko who said the rice was ready for harvesting before the flood hit them pleaded with the Federal and State Governments to come to the rescue of affected farmers.

In his words, “We need a lot of things, particularly we want the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) to come and see the level of damage done here.”
