The Senate on Thursday urged President Bola Tinubu to implement the recommendations of the Presidential Committee for the Development of a Comprehensive Plan of Action against Flooding.
The committee had recommended the establishment of a National Flood Management Council in Nigeria, an agency expected to serve as a central body responsible for coordinating flood management activities nationwide.
The Senate resolution followed the adoption of a motion by Senator Mukhail Abiru, Lagos East.
The red chamber commiserated with victims of the flood and also directed the National Emergency Management Agency to send relief materials to the victims of the flood in the affected communities in the two states.
It urged the Federal Government to convene a stakeholders’ meeting to x-ray the recurring situation of floods across the country to proffer a lasting solution.
