AquaMatters, Others Commend Buhari on Directive to Control Flooding

AquaMatters
A South Africa based Company, AquaMatters (Pty) Ltd, her partners, Sensatec of Germany, and TCarta Marine LLC of United States have commended President Muhammadu Buhari on his directive to the Minister of Water Resources, Engineer Suleiman Adamu to develop a plan towards the control of flooding situation in the country.

AquaMatters and its partners have over 30 years technical experience in flooding control and dams construction.

 

 

In a press release issued at the weekend and signed by Engr. Tomás Person, the Chief Executive Officer of AquaMatters and Mr. Corey Goodrich, Chief Executive officer of TCarta, the companies commended Buhari for his good initiative aiming at preventing future loss of lives and properties through flooding.

lt would be recalled President Buhari has directed Minister of Water Resources, Engr. Suleiman Adamu, to develop within 90 days a comprehensive plan of action for the prevention of flood disaster in Nigeria.

 

 

 

According to the President’s directive, the minister is to collaborate with the Ministries of Environment and Transportation as well as state governments to develop a lasting and sustainable plan towards curtailing flood in the country.

AquaMatters and its partners described the President’s directive as a welcome development and a departure from previous emergency plan.

 

 

 

They said the first culprit of flooding is always the big word ‘Climate Change’, which is basically the changing weather patterns associated with global warming.

” It is obvious that the climatic conditions are changing; however, there are many related, natural, and man made factors that contribute to flooding.To forestall further threats to food security, the companies are willing to work with the Ministry of Water Resources to find the lasting solution to flooding in Nigeria.

 

 

Without doubt government must begin to act pro – actively by utilising geographical information systems and metrological data to improve their early warning systems and reduce people’s exposure to flood risk, this is area of specialisation of our company”, Goodrich said on behalf of the group .

He further said that TCarta, has the capacity to provide geospatial dáta products and software solutions for geospatial applications from Engineering monitoring to hydrographic charting and geospatial intelligence.

 

 

He said : The Nigerian government must begin to consider the construction of a buffer dam to accommodate excess water from the Lagdo Dam in Cameroon. This is very critical given that aside from dam absorbing excess water, a buffer dam will provide irrigation for thousands of hectares of land, stimulate fishing, and most likely support the generation of electricity.

“The government must also invest in the dredging of the major rivers to accommodate high volume of water, promote inland waterways as well as capture fishing. Finally, the government must build, reactivate, and maintain the urban drainage systems, and prevent people from erecting structures on waterways”.

 

 

According to Goodrich, Tcarta has a leveraging long history of providing bathymetric data and seafloor mapping for marine applications, the offer inland, coastal and offshore hydrospatial and geospatial mapping systems and solutions for geospatial remote sensing intelligence, coastal engineering, environmental and coastal monitoring, and global mapping applications.

” The Company has worked in the coastal waters throughout the globe and with large scale surveying initiatives in the Pacific, Caribbean and Indian Oceans and specific focus on remote island nations and challenging environments in the Middle East and Arctic regions”he said .

 

 

The release further stressed the importance of dams, adding that, Nigeria need more dams and that with adequate dams, flood which is seen as a disaster would be of great economic importance to the country if properly managed and channeled to the agricultural sector and hydropower plants creation.

Power of Prayer as Apostle Suleman Raises Boy from Dead in Benin City

Power of Prayer as Apostle Suleman Raises Boy from Dead in Benin City

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sahara Weekly Reports That Few days ago, another shocking testimony of God’s healing power was made in Benin City, Edo State, Nigeria. Popular servant of God, Apostle Johnson Suleman, prayed life into the unconscious body of a five years old boy.

 

 

 

Power of Prayer as Apostle Suleman Raises Boy from Dead in Benin City

 

 

 

 

 

Judging from the two-day ‘Mighty Turnaround’ crusade, the manifestation inspired believers. Normally, when a person has been declared dead for half an hour, doctors give up. But, according to the Scriptures, that was just when Jeremiah was called to pray. Jeremiah prayed and the lifeless man’s heart began to beat and he came back from the dead. That was the lot of the lucky boy, whose life Apostle Suleman spoke to and revived.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So, how did he make that happen? ‘It is the power of prayer,” the ‘Restoration Apostle’ enthused in his sermon. He continued; “It’s really as simple as that. And we have a testimony that the miraculous experience is having great effects on believers, it has raised people’s faith levels.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sources from the Benin City crusade said that the experience really raised people’s expectations “because they saw God move”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

According to Apostle Suleman in one of his recorded prayer services, “the power of prayer seeking God’s intervention in human’s affairs was seen most dramatically when God raised Christ from the dead. The resurrection was something the earliest followers of Jesus experienced as a real, historical event. This shows that the very power that raised Jesus from the dead is still available to us and we get it when we ask God in prayer. We ask Him and He helps us with power that exceeds our comprehension and expectations.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Benin experience was not Apostle Suleman’s first, but it has continued to stay on the front burner, given the surge of testimonies that followed the service.
