Kogi residents now use boats

Although 21 states of the federation are affected by record floods, Kogi appears worse hit. Three weeks after the rise in water level, movement in and out of the state is now via boats, canoes and ferries.

Being  a confluence town and a neighbouring city to the nation’s capital, a number of travelers are currently stranded in the city due to the inundated roads which has affected the Abuja-Lokoja expressway with a number of bridges and roads, submerged.

People are now paying operators of boats and ferries to convey them and their goods in and out of the city.

The state government has  assured that efforts are being made to reduce the effect of the disaster caused by this unprecedented flood.
