The Ekiti State Government has approved a sum of N165,554,230 for the desiltation of silted drains, culverts and access slabs in Ado, Ikere and Irepodun/Ifelodun Local Government Areas.

Ekiti News reports that the development is in furtherance of the continuous intervention of the Oyebanji administration in the dredging of waterways and desiltation of all hydraulic infrastructures including dams, reservoirs, canals, watercourses, culverts, bridges and other flood control structures across the State but particularly in Ado Ekiti metropolis.

Rt. Hon. Taiwo Olatunbosun, the State Commissioner for Information, disclosed this in a statement after the State Executive Council meeting held at the Executive Council Chamber, New Governor’s Office in Ado Ekiti on Thursday, 30th May, 2024.

According to the statement, the proactive intervention of the administration has overtime mitigated potential impact of flood as the administration has ceaselessly engaged in precautionary measures to prevent flood since December 2022.

The Commissioner urge residents to support efforts of Government at safeguarding lives and property of people in the State by shunning acts that may be inimical to Government’s flood prevention initiatives such as erecting structures on waterways, dumping waste and refuse on drainages and obstruction of canals.
