Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has approved about 8.2 million dollars to cater for medical and relief support for persons affected by flooding in parts of the country.
The Hydrological Agency had warned last week of floods because of massive water inflows into two main rivers, the Benue and Niger.
Areas surrounding the two water bodies have been flooded, uprooting thousands from their homes.
Late last week, President Buhari through his chief of staff, ordered the National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA boss, Mustapha Maihaja to declare a “national disaster,” if the situation so demands.
The President said the Federal Government is closely monitoring the two rivers.
The military’s Disaster Response Units will be activated, for search and rescue missions.
