It was rather unfortunate, but due to the unwelcome effects of climate, with the resultant heavier, prolonged rains, a series of flood disasters has hit Nigeria like a heat wave, resulting in the significant loss of lives, property, and agricultural establishments. The disaster affected over 22 states in the federation, with the worst hit states being the riverine states like Adamawa, Anambra, Delta, Rivers states, among many others. This had led to the displacement of many persons from their homes and communities, turning them into refugees who battle for survival at the mercy of the States and Federal Governments, and several relief agencies. Also, major markets got their own share of the hit, eg: The Main Market, Onitsha.
Thankfully, the water level has recedded, and people are returning to their homes. However, the impact is strong and overwhelming: ravaged roads and residential houses, destroyed farmlands, and a myriad of others. Now, experts are arguing that this will greatly affect food supply in the country. What will the Government do to remedy the precarious situation?!
