A call has been made to the appropriate authorities in Nigeria, all states of the federation and other critical stakeholders to galvanize efforts and clear blocked gutters, service maintenance holes and other water channels before the return of full rainfall in Nigeria to avoid predicted floodings, which are becoming increasingly severe as a result of man-made climate change.
