We will end flooding in Rivers soon – Wike

The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, on Sunday evening told residents of Port Harcourt and other flooded communities that his administration will tackle its environmental challenges.
Wike, who empathised with all residents affected by the flooding, assured them that his administration will work with relevant agencies to resolve all flood related issues.

The governor, who inspected some flooded areas with engineers from Julius Berger and officials of the State Ministry of Works, directed all relevant agencies to take immediate measures.

He directed the continuous de-silting of all major canals in the town.

Wike also advised residents of Port Harcourt to stop dumping refuse in water channels, stating such actions lead to blockage of the water ways, which subsequently leads to the flooding.

He also stressed that he will take some tough steps to ensure that the State does not experience such devastating situation in the future.

The Liaison Manager of Julius Berger Plc, Sam Ngbor, also assured the governor that the company will work with the state government to resolve the challenges as soon as possible.

Rivers State is one of the many states affected by the heavy downpour being experienced across the nation in recent times.

One of the worst hit was the Lekki area of Lagos State, which saw many resident trapped indoors for days.
