effects of the floods that ravaged some parts

President for the firm and reassuring steps the
Federal Government has taken to mitigate the
impact of flooding across the states of the
federation and forestall further threat to the nation.

agencies and entire Nigerians to brace up for the
challenge of food shortages which the impact of the
flooding may likely occasion.

peculiar challenges of development demand
deeper insight and capacity which the President
has demonstrated.

long term measures being put in place to first
ameliorate the suffering of the affected Nigerian
communities as well as for the steps already being
taken to permanently put under check, the
incidence of flooding in future."
