How I Plan To Fix Flooding If Elected President — Peter Obi

The presidential candidate of Labout Party, LP, Peter Obi, said yesterday he would curb the flooding issue ravaging the country, if elected in 2023.

He also said his followers and proponents of the ‘Obidient’ movement were mostly Nigerians who were enraged over the sorry state of the nation and were, therefore, demanding change.

In an interview on Arise TV yesterday, Obi said the flooding problem could be solved by predicting the calculation of rainfall and dredging of major rivers to hold the water.

He said:  “What will I do to curb this flooding? There’s a combination of things that I need to do. There is the issue of Lagdo dam but even the minister said the rainfall caused the flooding and not the dam.

”But if you take the average rainfall in the past 20 years, since 2001, it remained the same, which means it is predictable.

“But the issue is that we have refused to dredge some rivers. We need to dredge the River Benue and Niger from Baro, Niger state down to the Atlantic Ocean.

”But there’s currently no ability to hold this drainage, and tributaries are also part of what is causing this problem. The rivers are no longer contributing to our economic growth as they should be. These are the things we should do to be able to contain this.”
