It is an annual happening during rainy seasons that water flooding wreaks a lot of destruction and damages to our people. This is mainly due to our negligence to either construct drainages in the right places or clear them of any blockages caused by us or other factors.
The forecast for this year is that rains will be short but very heavy. I am appealing to our citizens to take this warning seriously and ensure good and unblocked drainages so that we may be saved from needless destruction of water.
Those also on the river banks should take the warning from the Cameroun Republic that release of excess water from their dams could cause havoc on our shores, because to before warn is to be forearmed.
Also, Taraba State Ministry of Environment and the State Emergency Management Service should jointly intensify public enlightenment so that our state will be spared the dangers and devastation offloading.
