A crash course in changing the world.
NEMA: http://www.nema.gov.ng/resp&recov.htm is the only Urban resilience plan that could be sighted in Nigeria. Disaster such as flooding is a bedevilling situation that the people had to face every rainy season. After each round of lament, the same event repeats itself without any concrete solution in place. Now that Urban resilience is on the table, i know no city where I could point to Urban resilience plan in Nigeria. Even NEMA is too distant that you could only find it on federal news Media.
When ever the flood begin to sweep away houses, you hear the people crying asking government to come to their aid. An aid that will never come. When i took my phone to ask about Urban Resilience plan, the people who had learn to place their burden on Government did not have an Iota of response.
I went to contact my friends on how we could begin a resilience plan, but they seemed to think am Jobless.
