NEED TO DREDGE THE RIVER BENUE

I feel compelled to write and draw the attention of the federal government on the issue of dredging the River Benue in the North East which is giving a lot of concern and seem to be neglected by the federal government. The River Benue has its origins in the Adamawa Plateau of Northern Cameroon. The Lagdo Dam, a 40m high dam, has been built across the river about 50km upstream of Garoua, a major town on the river in Northern Cameroon. The water releases from this dam has continued to create floods in Cameroon and in Nigeria over the years and the resulting devastation reached all the way to the Niger Delta in Nigeria during 2012. Two major tributaries, River Mayo Kebi and River Faro, join the Benue in Northern Cameroon downstream of the Lagdo Dam; coming down to Numan where there is a confluence of both River Gongola and River Benue. I am sure not many people know about River Gongola. Let me explain briefly before returning to my main subject.
