The Nation reports that the Buhari–led federal government has said that the flood tragedy, which has resulted in the loss of lives and livelihoods, can only be mitigated through constant investments that would last for 30 years.
After a Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting on Wednesday, October 26, presided over by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Minister of Water Resources, Engr. Suleiman Adamu, who revealed that he presented to the Council jointly with the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management, and Social Development, stated that despite the early warning system in place, many capital-intensive initiatives still need to be done in the future to avert the catastrophe.Informaion Guide Nigeria

Floods cannot be averted; instead, the government can only mitigate their effects, according to Adamu, who also observed that the investments needed to prevent them are unachievable during a single administration.
The Minister, who claimed that many flood victims disregarded evacuation orders, also attributed the country’s severe flooding this year on soil degradation and the cutting of trees.
