Photos : Ibadan Flood, Makinde Visits Affected Areas
Oyo State Governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde, Chairman State Advisory Committee, Senator Hosea Agboola and others inspected communities affected by yesterday’s flood in Ibadan.
The communities are Oke Omi, Ikumapayi, Olodo and Sawmill Bridge Onipepeye, Old Ife road in Ibadan.
Governor Makinde said “there is a drainage master plan for Ibadan under the Ibadan Urban Flood Management Project which is currently being executed. Once all of these projects are completed, it will ensure that these occurrences are taken care of”.
He noted that the river is already being dredged under the IUFMP, though the Sawmill Bridge is undersized.
He added that, “I have asked the Local Government Caretaker Chairman to write for approval so that work can commence to put a properly sized bridge there”.
In addition to this Makinde said “We’ll also remove structures on our waterways. At the main road at Olodo, some people already moved out of their houses. So, the govt will enumerate such properties & relocate those people. We’ll continue to work with those in flood prone areas to ensure that they are protected”.
