The Labour Party Presidential candidate, Peter Obi was interviewed on Arise News hours ago by Oseni Rufai and Reuben Abati. During this interview, Obi revealed that several Contracts have been awarded in the past for the two main rivers in Nigeria to be dredged and yet no one can explain where the money went to. 

According to him, one of the main reasons why Nigeria is currently experiencing such heavy flood is because the two main rivers in Nigeria, Niger and Benue are not dredged and de-silted. He explained that because the water is silted it is unable to hold drainage and leads to flooding.

He went further to say that dredging would have solved all this and contracts were awarded for such projects, yet none was done and no can knows where the money went to or how it was spent.

He said, “Rufai, there are things to do to contain this flooding. Can you believe that several contracts have been awarded in the past for our rivers to be dredged? Where is the money and how was it spent?”.
