Agency warns residents over flooding in Oyo

The Oyo State Nigeria Erosion and Watershed Management Project (Oyonewmap) has warned residents not to overlook early warning messages, as its officials embark on a sensitization exercise.

The Project Coordinator of Oyo State Nigeria Erosion and Watershed Management Project (Oyonewmap), Barr. Tayo Ayoade, made this plea adding that the Project will embark on an advocacy and sensitization programme on Early Warning and Action on flood hazards throughout the State.

Barr. Tayo Ayoade said this while speaking to the Press during the week in Ibadan.

He stated that the advocacy and sensitization targeted at all the stakeholders in 33 Local Government Areas will hold in six(6) zones across the State.

“Oyonewmap has improved its information-gathering and dissemination so it can play a stronger early warning role”, he said.

According to Barr. Ayoade, the advocacy and sensitization programme will hold between 16th -24th April 2024 in Iseyin, Ogbomoso, Ibarapa, Oyo Saki and Ibadan.

He noted that the programme became necessary to sensitize the residents of Oyo State on steps that can be taken to avert flood disaster.

Ayoade therefore appealed to residents to imbibe the culture of safety and engage in environmentally friendly practices/activities as well as ensure that their wastes are properly disposed to avert flooding and erosion.
