Also, a former Lagos lawmaker who represented Epe Federal Constituency, Mr. Lanre Odubote has called on the Federal Government to come to the aid of the state in fighting flood.
The PDP also dismissed the call on Federal Government to come to the aid of the state in the fight against flood. PDP also said the special status or additional funding will not address the problem because it was caused mainly by the policies of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
In a telephone conversation with The Guardian yesterday, Publicity Secretary of PDP, Mr. Taofik Gani said flood in Lagos was due to the sand filling of various waterfronts to build estates, which senior government officials in the state appropriate among themselves.
Meanwhile, residents of Kudeyibu Estate, Ijegun in Igando/Ikotun Local Council Development Area, Lagos State have begun to count their losses, following the havoc wreaked by yesterday’s heavy downpour in the area.
Houses, shops, churches and other properties were waterlogged during the heavy rainfall, destroying buildings and household properties, running into millions of naira.
The Guardian learnt that from Kudeyibu Street through Fatade and Toriola Streets, down to the beginning of Oshun road, it was tales of woes, as their houses were submerged.
