NSE expresse concern over recurrence of flood in the country

Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE) has expressed concern about the failure of government to deploy adequate technology to prevent the recurrence of floods in several parts of the country.

In a communique issued at the end of a three-day National Engineering Conference and Annual General Meeting in Abuja, the society noted that technological innovation could have prevented the recent flood that had affected over three point two million people, with over one point four million displaced.

NSE President, Mr. Tasiu Gidari-Wudil, said the method would reduce the impact of flooding on the people and ensure they were not left to their sufferings.

Mr. Gidari-Wudil who charged government to take proactive steps to mitigate the effects of the disaster said, there is need for proactive measures at all levels of government and stakeholders supported by effective enforcement of best practices including communication and digital technologies for flood control.
