Nigeria, Cameroon develop MoU on Ladgo Dam
Abuja—Nigeria is prepared to develop a Memorandum of Understanding, MOU, with Cameroon on the management of water from Ladgo Dam, an official told the newsmen in Abuja, yesterday.
The official at the Federal Ministry of Water Resources said in Abuja that the technical mission to Cameroon on the issue of Ladgo Dam would visit the country between today and tomorrow to discuss modalities for managing water resources.
Unregulated water released from Ladgo Dam located 50km south of the City of Garoua on the Benue River caused huge flooding in Nigeria in September.
The official said: “What informed the decision to visit Cameroon is as a result of the September floods.
“One of the causes of the floods, apart from excessive rainfall, was the unregulated release of water from Ladgo Dam.”
