Such a massive flood caused the Kogi government to announce a state of emergency. The priority was immediately given to environmental issues. Mr. Simon Achuba, the state Deputy Governor, revealed the plan which he received from the officials of Ecological Fund Office, who arrived in Lokoja.
According to the official, the government declared an environmental sanitation day (the last Saturday of a month) to gather the locals to sanitary their neighborhood. He also thanked the Federal Government for all the necessary support, which all people in two communities require urgently.
Mrs. Rosemary Osikoya, the Commissioner for Environment and Natural Resources, told that earlier the ministry had revealed the ecological reports to the team on nineteen local government areas in Kogi state.
