Prepare For More Flood Disaster In Ogun, Lagos And Oyo States - Nema Warns.

The National Emergency Management Agency has said that Lagos, Ogun and Oyo states may experience more flood disasters due to the high volume of rainfall expected in September.

Spokesman of the agency, Ibrahim Farinloye while speaking at a retreat in Abeokuta, noted that Nigeria would record more flood disasters this year in Lagos and other neighbouring states following the alleged refusal of the state governments to expand drainages both in the rural and urban areas.

Farinloye, who noted that the warning became imminent due to the recent flooding in many parts of the country, advised the state governors and local government executives to expand drainages in their areas, adding that it is the only solution to the impending disaster.
