The issue of flooding in Nigeria especially in the southern states continues to be a major source of concern to citizens both home and abroad.
The heavy floods in Nigeria have killed at least 603 people and displaced upwards of 1.3 million since September, said Sadiya Umar Farouq, the country’s minister of humanitarian affairs and disaster management, at a media briefing.
