The State Commissioner for Special Duties and Inter-Governmental Affairs, Hon. Olufemi Ilori-Oduntan, while presenting cash to the victims, stated that the compensation was to give timely succour to the people affected by the disaster, having assessed the damages the storm had caused.

 The Commissioner who appreciated the people for supporting the administration's agenda to develop the State, also assured that Prince Dapo Abiodun-led administration would not rest on its oars to provide infrastructure and give necessary support to the people to ameliorate their challenges.

 Ilori-Oduntan who advised the victims to make prudent use of the money educated them on the importance of planting trees in their houses, schools, along roads, and others, emphasising that the damages caused by the windstorm would have been averted if there were trees planted in the environment.
