The Director of SEMA, Mr. Olufolarin Ige, stated this when a team from the Ministry of Environment visited the affected areas of the city, advising the victims to take photographs of their damaged properties for proper enumeration.
Mr. Ige said the gravity of the disaster was extensive, such that National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), must be brought into the picture, so that victims could be adequately catered for, assuring that government would not neglect the victims in their plight.
In his remark, Director of Flood, Ministry of Environment, Engr. Ismail Adenuga, said there was the need for complete re-engineering of the drainage system in the city, adding that State government would need the ecological funds from the federal government to achieve this.
