By Opeyemi Daniel

Following incessant downpour which has rendered a lot of Kwarans homeless, kwara state, through the state's Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Environment and Forestry, Alhaji Isiaka Amosa Al-Amin has called on those who live at the riverinr to heed to warnings and leave to safer topography to safeguard lives and properties.

Speaking exclusively to National Moonlight Newspaper,  Amosa said "rain will continue to fall till the month of November, leaving them with no choice at the moment than move to a safer place.  They must quit, that is the only solution for now".

The permanent  secretary noted that there are places to move to as government has made available relief areas where those affected can temporarily relocate.

According to him, the state government has appealed to the federal government to direct contractors in charge of Asa river dredging back to work in order to permanently solve the perennial problem.

"We are still advising people. Rain will continue to fall till early November mostly at night", he said.

"We are appealing again because we don't want to record another casualty like the unfortunate death of Lateefat Adeyemi", he appealed.

On those that are affected by flood, the permanent  secretary said "we are collating as government will find a way of assisting them.  The issue is that this govevernment does not believe in palative measure but in permanent solution".
