Flood: Adamawa Community Seeks Construction Of Drain Project

(Last Updated On: 2022-08-10)


The Leader of Samu Naka community in Yola South Local Government Area of Adamawa, Malam Musa Mohammed, in an interview on Wednesday has called for construction of drain to mitigate perennial flooding in the area.

He said lack of drains had been exposing residents to flooding every rainy season, adding that the disaster resulted to destruction of houses and property.

He said such intervention from government and other relevant authorities would mitigate flood and protect the environment.

“We call on government at all levels to remedy the situation by constructing drain to ease free flow of water in the flood-prone community,” he said.

He, however, urged the residents to shun indiscriminate dumping of waste and erection of structures on water ways.

NAN reports that the Nigeria Metrological Agency (NiMet) in its 2022 Seasonal Climate Prediction (SCP) said 32 states and 233 LGAs would experience flood this rainy season.
