Kogi Government says it is doing everything possible to ensure that the embankment project along River Niger in Lokoja becomes a reality, to check the re-occurrence of flood, reminiscence of the 2012 flood in the state.
The Commissioner for Environment and Natural Resources, Mr Sanusi Yahaya said this on Wednesday while inspecting the level of work on the project in Lokoja.
He expressed satisfaction on the progress of work on the project so far, noting, “they have made a lot of progress with the funds released to them“.
Yahaya expressed optimism that the project, when completed, would prevent flooding in the state capital and its environs.
“We don’t want to experience the kind of devastating flood we had in 2012, that is why we are working hard to ensure that this project is delivered as soon as possible,” he said.
