Kwara State Calls for River Niger Dredging

The Kwara State House of Assembly has called on members of the National Assembly from the state to push for the River Niger dredging project, the Abuja based Daily Trust informs.

This action is part of the resolutions of the House, following a motion moved by a member representing Patigi Constituency, Ahmed AbdulKadir.

The deputy speaker, Elder Matthew Okedare, while reading the resolutions of the House, said that the River Niger dredging project became necessary to alleviate the colossal damage, usually associated to flooding in the affected communities, which according to the House, were major producers of rice in Nigeria.

According to Daily Trust, the legislature equally called on the state government to urgently come to the aid of the victims, with the provision of relief materials to alleviate their sufferings.
