He revealed that Persons With Disabilities across the affected states can contact the Commission through our 24/7 rapid response WhatsApp hotline: +2347015370083 when there is need for evacuation as he had earlier called on frontline humanitarian actors to always “give priority to them when evacuating affected people.”

He prayed to God to grant the parents the fortitude to bear the loss.
