The House of Representatives has tasked the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) to intervene and distribute relief materials to flood victims in Fagge Local Government Area of Kano State.

The resolution is contained in a motion sponsored by Rep. Muhammed Bello Shehu (Kano, APC), who noted that erosion occasioned by flood is becoming a serious environmental disaster, threatening and destroying physical infrastructures, and properties, as well as retarding social and economic growth and development.

According to the motion sponsor, communities affected include Kwarin Gogau, Zungeru Road, Kwakwaci, Darirawa, Sabon Birni, Alfa, Tudun Bojuwa, Alasawa, Jaba, Kwarin Akuya and Kwakwaci II; all in Fagge.

Rep. Shehu further lamented persistent flooding that has shattered industrial development, wrecked the economy, created low food production, degrades the environment, and create a bleak future if not nipped in the bud.

To this end, the House urged the Federal Ministry of Environment and the Ecological Fund Office, as a matter of urgency, to intervene by assessing erosion problems to ensure the execution of erosion control and remediation projects in all the affected communities.

It also urged the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing to rehabilitate and reconstruct affected roads, and further mandated the Committee on Appropriations (when constituted) to include the project in the 2024 Appropriation budget estimate.
