Vice-President Kashim Shettima has raised concerns over an “existential threat” of drought and flooding in the country.

Shettima spoke on Tuesday while receiving the report of the presidential committee on flood mitigation, adaptation, preparedness, and response.

The report highlights the findings of the national economic council ad hoc committee report on flood, the national flood emergency, preparedness and response plan, and the presidential committee on the development of a comprehensive plan of action for preventing flood disasters in Nigeria.

“We have been witnessing drought, flood, etc. The saying on the climate crisis is that it is either too much (floods), too little (drought), or too polluted,” the vice-president was quoted in a statement by Stanley Nwocha, his media aide.


“We are all gathered to find a solution for the ‘too much’ scenario that is flooding.

“Flood events have, in the past, affected communities with devastating impacts on livelihoods, people and the environment with loss of lives witnessed in some cases such as the last flood witnessed in 2022.”

The vice-president said President Bola Tinubu is committed to enhancing the lives of vulnerable Nigerians.


He commended members of the committee for their relentless hard work towards ensuring that the impact of climate change is mitigated through the comprehensive report.
