The heavy rains led to the death of Agbanu Godfred, a 19-year-old form one student of the Bueman Senior High School, and destroyed about 63 houses.
The student drowned in the Labo River when returning to his hometown, Pusupu, a suburb of the Nkwanta South Municipality on a motor bike.
A search party recovered the body of the deceased which was interred at the bank of the river.
The MP, who visited the constituency to sympathize with victims and solicit first-hand information on the havoc caused by the floods, said he was prepared to help the authorities to initiate plans towards the prevention of such disasters in the future.
Mr. Kini said the effects of the floods were ravaging and therefore called for urgent intervention from the major stakeholders to curb such disasters.
He urged prospective estate developers and landlords to stop building on waterways and along riverbanks.
The MP was accompanied by Mr. Prosper Akamani, the National Democratic Congress Nkwanta South Constituency Chairman, and some party executives to sympathize with the family of the student.
Mr. Stephen Larry, the NADMO Coordinator, said the Organization had activated measures to reach out to the affected victims with some relief items.
