Osun Govt Concludes Dredging of 123km of Waterways, Canals

The Osun state government says it has completed the dredging of a combined 123km of waterways and canals in the state, in order to check incidences of flooding.

An aide of State Governor Rauf Aregbesola, Mr. Bola Ilori, revealed that the state has made adequate preparation should the rain come pouring in large quantities like it did last year.

Ilori is a former special adviser on environment.

“Governor Rauf Aregbesola holds every life as sacrosanct and would do anything to prevent the loss of lives and property”, Ilori said.

He added that: “The Governor made a commitment to prepare for flood disasters and recurrence of flooding and in fulfilment of that promise, I’m happy to announce to you that the state has concluded the dredging of 123km of waterways in the state.”

The 123 kilometres of waterways and canals was cleared to pave way for free flow of water in Osogbo, Edun Abon and other flood-prone areas across the State, government officials said.

About 2.5 million tree seedlings of various species have been given to citizens for free to encourage tree planting and prevent erosion in Osun.
