There have been severe cases of flooding, which sacked communities along the coastlines and water belt, leading to loss of lives and properties.
As an interim measure, the government evacuated many of the affected residents to temporary sites until it is safe for them to return home.
But the state government seems to have found a solution to the challenge by building a large estate to accommodate those who may be affected in future.
Commissioner for Housing, Mr Bosu Jeje said the estate consists of 70 blocks of one, three and three-bedroom flats with 15 blocks of terrace building.
He said the government’s initial plan was to build the estate at Ado-Ikosi, but it had to change its mind to go to the present site based on the outcome of a test to ascertain its suitability.
