Abuja, Jan. 23, 2023 – The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) on Monday said the country would witness flooding this year.

Mustapha Ahmed, Its Director-General, said this in Abuja on Monday at a seminar organised for NEMA stakeholders.

He said that although the level of the flood and locations were yet ascertained, but early preparation would mitigate the likely impacts.

Mustapha said some staff of NEMA and other critical stakeholders in disaster management were undergoing training to aid their preparedness and response during emergencies.

Last year, the country witnessed flooding which led to the death and displacement of many people across the country.  (GBN)
