Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State on Saturday appealed to the Federal Government to dredge the River Benue as that would be the only lasting solution to incessant flooding in parts of the state.

Ortom made the remark during an interview with newsmen when he paid on-the-spot assessment visit to flooded areas in Makurdi metropolis.

The governor also urged members of the National Assembly from Benue State to lobby the federal authority in order for them to hasten the dredging of the river.

He however warned residents of Benue communities to desist from building on drainages as government will soon clampdown on those without approved building plans.
