“NADMO doesn’t have the items, and I don’t blame them. It is the fault of the administration because they are not given the sufficient resources to be able to respond.”

“The little that NADMO had, they have brought it, and that is why we have come to supplement whatever they have brought and to call on the government to show sympathy to the people here.”
