President Muhammadu Buhari has directed the Minister of Water Resources to lead and facilitate with the Ministries of Environment and Transportation as well as State Governments to foster a Comprehensive Plan of Action for Forestalling Flood Disaster in Nigeria.
Buhari’s order, which was passed on to the Minister in a letter signed by his Chief of Staff, Prof Ibrahim Gambari, said the plan should be presented to him in 90 days.
A brief statement by Garba Shehu on Monday broke the information to reporters in Abuja.
It added that President Buhari is consistently getting updates on the flooding circumstance in the nation and rehashes his commitment towards tending to the difficulties brought about by the disaster in the country.
It isn’t certain if the President’s mandate is in responses to criticism from certain Nigerians who have blamed the Federal Government for paying lip service to the flooding difficulties.
A new report by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) throughout the end of the week had said over 1.5 million children at risk of dropping out of schools and facing unavoidable health challenges because of the flood circumstance which has reportedly affected 34 states out of 36 in Nigeria.
