our people are having flood issues here, they are moving immediately the flood get to the village they reside.
i wonder why our Northern brothers will wait till the flood started drowning them before they move, always waiting for the government to truck them to IDP camps.

the warning has been there by nema since early this year.
it is that this particular flooding is the opening of same up stream all the way beyond and the non desilting of the river Niger bed on this axis is a big contributor(I think)

I hope the flood didn't kill anyone? this isn't reasonable anymore.
we are also having flood issues here and everybody in the remote villages affected by this flood move quickly to where the flood doesn't get to.

but the way the North awaits government to truck them away from menace of flood is what I don't understand.

Flood is natural disaster which mostly occur suddenly. Some record shown that North never witness such kind of heavy downfall in more than 50years
