Obalim-Udoba, said cassava stem will help the communities to mitigate the negative effect of the flood and allow them to kick-start farming in earnest.

The distribution held at Umueze Anam and was witnessed by residents of communities that make up the local government area.

Obalim-Udoba said flood destroyed all the cassava stems stored by his people who are predominantly farmers and.

Noting that cultivation of cassava usually starts between November and December, he said this prompted him to distribute the high yield stems which will germinate soon.
