Waste of Resources: Minister mocked for using jet in aerial assessment of Kainji dam flood

Kainji Dam bursts: Hydrological agency reacts to reports of possible blackout (video)

Minister of humanitarian affairs, disaster management and social development, Sadiya Farouq has been condemned over her method of approach to inspect Kainji dam which has been in the news recently for flood issues.

WITHIN NIGERIA learnt that Farouq had used of a jet for the aerial assessment of Kainji and her critics have tagged her method as a waste of resources, adding that there are other methods that could be used for a more efficient result with minimal budget.

The criticism ensued on twitter after the Ministry in a tweet posted on Thursday said the minister flew over the dam to assess the impact of flooding at the banks of the river.

“Yesterday, HM @Sadiya_farouq flew over the Kainji dam for an aerial view and assessment of the impact of the flooded banks.”, the ministry tweeted.

Drone would have done a better job, one Japhet Omojuwa tweeted in response, “Imagine if scientists discovered something called drones. They’d have been far cheaper, safer and would have had a genuine aerial view than a whole flight where you actually don’t get any aerial view. What if you used a copter? Whoops! They haven’t been discovered too.”

“ONE DRONE pere would have saved us from wasting the pilot’s time, the aviation fuel, and of course, the headache of seeing this unfortunate photo op because I’m not sure there’s anything she can see from such altitude, ” another Demola Gbajabiamila also mocked the Minister.
