‘Enugu prone to several erosion challenges’



Enugu State Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi yesterday said the gully erosion threat in the state has continued to deplete landscape, damage farmlands as well as consume property, among others.

Ugwuanyi, who spoke shortly after commissioning remediated erosion sites at 9th Mile Corner in Udi and Ajali Water Works in Ezeagu as well as office complex executed by the state government with support from World Bank’s Nigeria Erosion and Watershed Management Project (NEWMAP), said seven serious gully erosion sites currently exist in the state.

The governor, who said engineering designs had been completed and approved for site intervention at Onuiyi Haven and Ohom Orba in Nsukka, appealed to the World Bank and the national office of NEWMAP to include Nsukka as a beneficiary of the bank’s urban storm water projects.
