Gully erosion threatens Jigawa communities

Gully erosion is threatening to sack Kore community, Garki Local Government Area of Jigawa State.

Malam Musa, a resident, told DAILY POST that for over 40 years the town has been under the threat of being destroyed by landslides due to erosion.

According to him, “the gully is widening during the rainy season and has claimed several farmlands in the community.

“As you can see, we are at a risk of losing our houses and farmlands if urgent action is not taken to reclaim it.”

Musa urged governments at all levels, to as a matter of urgency, save the residents from losing their houses.

Chairman, Senate Committee on FERMA, Senator Babangida Hussaini earlier while inspecting the area, said the government had already set up machinery to solve the problem.

He said the contract had been awarded and the contractor mobilized to site.
