All across much of Nigeria, for most of the month of September 2012, from Adamawa to Jigawa, Taraba to Kogi, Edo to Cross River, Imo and many other states, major flood has caused great damage washing away homes, roads and farmlands.
Lives have also been lost in Imo, Cross River, Benue, and Adamawa.
The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has had more than its hands full, coping with the flooding in so many different parts of the country.
Vast farmlands of yams, cassava and vegetables were washed away as well as natural and artificial fish ponds. This raises the prospect of severe food shortage in the nears future.
