In the wake of the flood menace affecting some parts of Lagos, the Federal Government backed Ecological Fund Office inspected areas affected by recent flooding in Kosofe area of Lagos State, with the view to assist the sacked communities.
Mr. Ibrahim Lawal, who led the Presidential Team for an on-the-spot assessment of the flooded communities, said the visit followed complaints by Senator Bayo Osinowo, representing Lagos East, in the Senate.
Lawal said: “We are here on investigation. Senator Bayo Osinowo is the one shouting that water is killing his people. We have come on ground to see the damage.
“We came to put up an assessment and situation report. He complained about erosion and flood problems in his domain. We are coming up with a report so that we can have lasting solutions.
“After then, the senator will follow up the report for approval so that the communities can benefit from the ecological funds’ intervention.
“The assurance we are given to the residents is that government will intervene. Government is for the people.”
Assessing the disaster, Lawal said the flooding was huge, but assured that the government would intervene very soon.
