IBADAN FLOOD HAZARD

FLOOD ALERT TO IBADAN

The Nigeria Hydrological Services Agency (NIHSA) issued a flood alert that there was likely to be flooding in the city of Ibadan. To this end, the Oyo State Government through the Ibadan Urban Flood Management Project (IUFMP) embarked on series of activities to mitigate the impact of flooding if and when it occurs. Part of the activities embarked upon was sensitizing the citizens on the dangers inherent in dumping refuse in drainages and water channels; as these are some of the causes of flooding in Ibadan. The IUFMP in collaboration with the Ministry of Environment and Water Resources also commenced dredging of rivers and streams as these would assist in water capturing of the rivers thereby allowing for free flow of water.
