I am writing to please use your medium to draw attention of the government to the urgent need for a proper drainage system in Ogba.
The rampant flooding of gutters in Ogba to improper drainage systems, which is causing significant damage to our local environment and posing health risks to residents.
The flooding of gutters in our community is a common sight, especially during the rainy season.
The problem is caused by the lack of proper drainage systems, which means that rainwater is not able to flow away from our streets and buildings. This often results in flooded streets, damaged buildings, and polluted waterways.
The impact of this issue is significant. The flooding of gutters is causing environmental damage by polluting our waterways and contributing to erosion. It is also posing health risks to residents, as the stagnant water can become a breeding ground for mosquitoes and other pests.
To address this issue, I suggest that the government invest in better drainage systems and ensure that they are properly maintained. Additionally, they should enforce strict penalties for individuals and companies that contribute to the problem by polluting the gutters. This will help to ensure that our community is protected from the negative impacts of flooding gutters.
In conclusion, I urge the government to take action to address this urgent need for a proper drainage system in Ogba, to protect our community.
Thank you for your attention to this important matter.
