Dutse — Emir of Hadejia Alhaji Adamu Abubakar Maje yesterday said unless the Federal Government intervenes, Jigawa State would experience the worst flood disaster.

Alhaji Adamu Maje made the observation while receiving a delegation from the Jigawa Forum who paid a sympathy visit to Hadejia over the recent flood disaster that displaced over two million families.

He said the only solution to the annual disaster was for the government to release enough funds for dredging of the Hadejia River. "When the river is dredged from Kano/Jigawa border to Jigawa/Yobe border, the water will have smooth passage, hence will not cause any havoc to our communities," said the emir. He added that more embankments should be erected along the river and places where the communities live closer to the water ways.

Apart from addressing the menace of flooding, he added, the distillation of the river would create more job opportunities for the people, as according to him, this would enable farmers engage in various farming activities.

Leader of the delegation, Professor Tabi'u Muhammad, said they were in Hadejia emirate to sympathise with victims of the flood disaster.

Professor Muhammad, who is the chairman of the forum, expressed concern over the devastating nature of the flood. He however appealed to the Federal Government to assist the state government to address the problem. He prayed to God to prevent future occurrence, appealing to the state government to assist the victims.
