The Association of Nigerian Private Medical Practitioners has said 15 of its members from four states were affected by the recent floods that ravaged the country.

The association made this known in a statement signed by its President, Dr Kayode Adesola, and Secretary General, Dr Ned Okoro.

It noted that eight of its members were affected in Bayelsa, three in Kogi, three in Rivers, and one in Imo.

Over 603 people were killed and over 1.4 million others displaced by flooding in 2022. More than 2,400 people were injured.

ANPMP, however, urged the Federal Government to support its members that suffered losses following the recent flood disaster across the country.

“We wish to call on the Federal Government of Nigeria to show mercy and support for the members of the association who lost their hospitals or homes due to the recent flood. Some actually lost both hospital and home, ending up in the internally displaced persons’ camp.

“It’s been quite an overwhelming event as the harsh situation in the country has been worsened by this disaster. These members who are victims are among those of us that have refused to join the ‘japa phenomenon,’ staying back to cater to the health needs of our people,” it said

The association added, “These flood victims are part of the private healthcare providership that contributes about 70 per cent of the healthcare delivery in the country.

“The members of the association have stressed themselves to raise about N10,000,000 only which has been distributed to the affected members but this remains a little drop into the ocean of need.”

“We also seize this opportunity to appeal to the Federal Government of Nigeria to seek and find a final solution to this perennial occurrence of flood disaster across the land.”
