Anambra Headquarters Of Gully Erosion In Africa – Expert by RockHard: 6:38am On Aug 05

An environmental expert and Head, Climate Change Education and Action Programme, Elochukwu Ezenekwe, has said that Anambra State remains the worst hit by climate change in Africa.

Ezenekwe also stated that Anambra had suffered the worst damage from climate change impacts in Nigeria and sub-Saharan Africa.


The environmental expert, reputed as Africa’s foremost climate change expert, stated this on Thursday during an enlightenment/education session at the Government House, Awka, the Anambra State capital.

The programme was facilitated by the Peace Advocacy and Sustainable Development Outreach and aimed at galvanising climate action by educating stakeholders and actors at the community, local, state, national and international levels.

While calling for an urgent need to declare a climate change emergency, he said Anambra State is suffering from flooding and is also the headquarters of gully erosion in Africa.

He said, “Climate change hits us in Africa through various extreme weather and climate-related events that include drought, flooding and gully erosion. Drought and desertification are the least destructive and easiest to manage.

“Flooding is more destructive but usually allows for recovery of houses and properties when the waters recede.

“But for gully erosion, the damage is comprehensive and total. Be it classrooms, community health centres, houses, crops, farmlands, roads, electricity infrastructure, livelihoods and all, everything collapses into the very deep gullies and nothing is recovered.

“Anambra State suffers from flooding and is also the headquarters of gully erosion in Africa, hence there is need to prioritise or even outrightly declare a climate change emergency in the state.”

He urged the state government to take needed steps to start earning income from the carbon credit and emissions trading opportunities presented by the large scale tree planting programme as well as the massive evacuation and treatment of wastes being undertaken by the current administration.

Reacting to the lecture, the Chief of Staff to the Governor of Anambra State, Mr Ernest Ezeajughi, commended the climate expert and the non-governmental organisation for embarking on the noble work of enlightening the government on the challenges and inherent opportunities that could be explored.

In the next few months to follow, APC and Tinubu will unleash their propaganda machines to feed the people with all sort of twisted information just to debase the other candidates.
Youths should be aware and remember all their atrocious activities against them.
*APC banned crypto
*Killed youths daily
*destroy our means of livelihood
*makes our siblings, relatives and parents pay constant ransom to state sponsored terrorists and bandits.
*increase VAT on calls and data
*increase electricity bills etc.

APC is built to destroy the youths of Nigeria.
May God help us.

Followed by Lagos.
But erosion is a natural disaster. Even Europe and other developed countries of the world experience such. Anambra is now in almost all the news just to bring Obi down or to make us see another part that doesn't add up

Ok we don hear, I prefer gully erosion to bandits flogging me in the bush. Based on say my family never pay ransom

Also remember that Lagos is the headquarters of slums in Nigeria, thanks to the Agbado idiot that developed the slums.


Also remember that Lekki is the headquarters of flood in Nigeria, thanks to it's modern architect, Tinubulation

Head quarters of bad things grin, even lagos that is so populated with little land mass despite being surrounded by water is not always as flooding as the dirty Anambra with plenty villages

Most of all dis south east state are not different from boko haram infested villages in d north but as igbos are not accommodating we don't go to their state talk more of getting to know what is happening in their rural areas, meanwhile despite all d tribulations from d bad governance and terrible ppl themselves dey run to SW for better life and yet kept insulting their host, we will soon deal with those horrible hateful igbos
