Governor of Ogun State, Dapo Abiodun has vowed to devise a plan to tackle flooding in the state.
Flooding has been a key problem in the state and recently, several residents in Ijebu-Ode and Abeokuta lost their properties to rampant disaster.
But Dapo Abiodun has sympathized with those affected and plans to put a stop to it.
His words, “From what we have seen here, the biggest problem we have in Ijebu-Ode is that the drains that crisscross the town are small concrete drains that are covered so they don’t allow for maintenance. They are very tiny.
“Ijebu-Ode will require very big open drains that can easily be serviced and maintained, so, we are going to have a comprehensive plan aimed at resolving these problems once and for all.
“I’m only fulfilling the promise I made during the electioneering campaign not to forget the people if voted into office to”.
“One of the biggest complaints we have had is that most of the homes are flooded once it rains.
“At times, people can’t even get into their homes till past midnight, so, I want to urge you to desist from throwing dirt into the drainages.
“Let us clear our drainages frequently. Assist us in taking the state to the next level”
“All areas with the issue of flooding would be attended.”
