Juanita Bynums Visit to Bayelsa State Flood Victims


As the internally displaced persons in Bayelsa State continue to receive sympathizers, Governor Seriake Dickson once again embarked on a tour of the relief camps at the Samson Siasia Stadium and Bishop Dimeari Grammar School in Yenagoa in company of an American Gospel Singer, [Dr. JuanitaBynum].

Addressing the people at the Bishop Dimeari Grammer School camp, Governor Dickson stated that the extent and magnitude of the flood was beyond the capacity of both the state and Federal Governments alone, adding that it would require the assistance of donor agencies, philanthropic organizations and well-meaning individuals to cope with the challenges arising from the flood across the state. 
The Governor, who explained that Dr. Bynum was in the state to assess the situation of things, noted that she was passionate about the wellbeing of humanity.  
Describing Dr. Bynum as a worthy friend and partner, he urged the Gospel Artiste to be the state’s ambassador by telling the Bayelsa story to the world as well as do her best to bring succor to the people. Speaking, Dr. Juanita Bynum assured the flood victims of her support through the provision of relief materials such as clothing, food and medical supplies.

According to Dr. Bynum, She has never taken up any cause before in her life but having seen the conditions of the victims she now has a compelling need to do so. She also used the occasion to render a special praise song to the delight of the displaced persons, who joined her in chorus.
