Date:

By HASSAN JIRGI Damaturu

Yobe state Governor Hon. Mai Mala Buni, has commissioned Amphibious Excavator Swamp Buggy, to clear water channels and curb the menace of flooding in the down stream communities.

Buni explained that, it became necessary to procure the heavy duty equipment to uproot plants on water channels blocking the flow of water.

According to him the equipment would also be used for excavation and desilting of the channels to increase the flow of water through the channels.

” This machine would remove plants on the water and excavate the water ways to increase water flow via the channels to minimise flooding of farms and houses”

“The yearly problem of floods taking over farmlands and communities due to forceful diversion of water from the rivers by blockage, would be a thing of the past” Governor Buni added.

The governor also directed for immediate deployment of the equipment to river Yobe and its tributaries to uproot typha grass on the river, and excavate the water ways.
