According to the legislator, the erosion which affected Zangon Marikita, Gayawa and Dankunkuru Communities have destroyed many houses, schools and places of businesses in the areas.
“It was necessary for me to call on the assembly to call on the government to rescue our communities because the situation caused by the erosion has crippled so many businesses which are a great challenge to the economy of the area and the state in general.

“To tell you how serious the erosion affected the area, in the normal situation from the Airport road it can take you only 10 minutes to these communities, but now it takes motorists not less than two hours before you get there.
“It is so sympathetic the condition which the residents of these communities, which are among the areas with higher residents are into due to the erosion because even the streets linking one area to the other was affected.”
“We, therefore, call on Governor Abdullahi Ganduje to as a matter of urgency look into the situation to enable the people of the areas to enjoy the dividend of democracy. It is the most affected areas by erosion across the state” he said.
