The minister’s address at the ceremony was made available to our correspondent by the Federal Ministry of Water Resources on Sunday night in Abuja.Adamu said, “Overall, the flood level may not be as severe as previous years.

He further stated that according to the 2020 AFO predictions, some parts of at least 102 Local Government Areas in 28 states fell within the highly probable flood risk areas.“While parts of 275 LGAs in the 36 states of the federation, including Federal Capital Territory, fall within the moderate probable flood risk areas,” the minister stated.

“Coastal flooding is expected in Rivers, Cross River, Delta, Lagos, Ondo and Bayelsa states, while flash and urban floods are expected to occur in major cities across the country due to poor drainage system,” he stated.Copyright PUNCH.All rights reserved.
