President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday inaugurated a 3.35-kilometer drainage channel project to address ecological challenges facing Idye Community in Makurdi, Benue.

Buhari said the inauguration of the ecological projects further showed the commitment of his administration to addressing flooding and erosion challenges in the country.

News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Idye Community was among the worst-hit areas of the 2017 flood that displaced over 120,000 persons in the Benue capital, Makurdi.
