Auwalu Bala added that, “We thank the chairman of Dawakin Tofa Local Government Council, Alhaji Ado Tambai Kwa who constructed a wide drainage that reduced the high impact of the erosion despite the financial scarcity facing local councils and we hope that his Excellency, Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje and other relevant stakeholders will rescue residents as well as farmlands from total degradation by the erosion”.
