Flood Alert: Niger State Govt orders riverine people to relocate

Niger Governor

The Niger state government has advised people in the riverine communities of the state to move to the upland to avoid being caught up by flood.
Government’s advice fol­lowed increase in the tempo of rainfall in most part of the state and the warning by the Nigerian Metrological Cent­er that the state was among the 26 states to witness flood this rainy season.
The statement made available to newsmen in Minna and signed by the commissioner of informa­tion, Mr Jonathan Vatsa stat­ed that the warning had be­come necessary because the administration could not watch its people lose their lives and property as a result of the flash flood.
