Flood Forces Kogi Assembly Members To Vacate Quarters

Ravaging flood in Kogi State has forced members of the Assembly quarters to vacate their houses overnight.

The Assembly quarters, located at Ganaja village, had been housing the 26 state lawmakers since 2003 until now, when the flood forced them out of their homes.

According to PUNCH, efforts to reach any of the Assembly members for comments proved abortive, as none of them picked their calls nor replied the text messages dropped.

As of the time of filing this report on Sunday, no one could access Ganaja village without using a canoe or boat to cross the flooded area, forcing commuters to use another route to Lokoja and beyond.

In a related development, several roads have been cut off, making it impossible for motorists and people to cross to other parts of the state.
