NEMA’s director-general, Muhammadu Muhammed, in a statement on Friday, July 10, warned that from the yearly Seasonal Rainfall Prediction (SRP) and Annual Flood Outlook (AFO) released by the Nigeria Hydrological Services Agency (NIHSA), Kaduna will be one of the affected states.

He said About 102 local government areas in 28 states across the nation have been alerted of imminent flood by the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA).

Muhammed specifically stated that the Kaura and Zaria local government areas of the state will be hit by the flood.

To avert disasters that might possibly ensue from this natural occurrence, the NEMA boss called on state governments to organise humanitarian coordination meetings to get stakeholders ready.

He said: “That refuse, weeds, water hyacinths should be removed from drainages, water channels and all avenues for river run-offs so as to allow free flow of water.
