Ecological wahala is loading in this community. While coming back from an outreach visit to Fadage – the #UHC4AllNigerians One Community at a Time Project Phase 1 community; I observed this terrible evidence that we are sometimes the reasons for some of the environmental challenges we face.
Go through the photographs. Houses were built ridiculously close to a river.
Some of the houses already show evidence of cracking in the walls – probably from the onslaught of the water.
It appears a new house is under construction; which will block the natural path of the river. Of course, the river will find another way around , but when the volume of water increases… What happens?
Say hello to floods; huge destructive floods that we now most conveniently label “an act of God” carelessly forgetting our heavy contributions to the process.
So, I am asking again, who do I report these to? Does the government have any control over the protection of our environment anymore?
