URGENT NEED TO EFFECTIVELY ARREST THE INTRACTABLE EROSION PROBLEMS FACING ANAMBRA STATE
Publication Date : 31/01/2017
Anambra State has been horrendously ravaged by a devastating erosion onslaught dating back to the early 20 th century. Erosion is concerned with the destruction and carrying away of top and sub-soil by the forces of wind, water and other forms of precipitation. There are different types, degrees and complexities of erosion. Effects are awful and control is difficult. It is one thing for man to acknowledge his apparent helplessness in the face of the indefatigable forces of nature, but another thing for man not to engage in unhealthy habits that exacerbate nature’s destructive powers but instead to channel nature’s forces to his advantage. All hands must therefore be on deck to ensure that Anambrarians and their partners are effectively dissuaded form ignorantly or otherwise, assisting erosion to consume the state, but rather to contribute their quota (individually and collectively) towards arresting this hydra-headed monster before it succeeds in depriving our posterity of a state they can call their own. This paper highlights the erosion challenges in Anambra state, with perspectives on what has been done in the past, what obtains presently and how these challenges can be overcome.
