Nigerians Blast Humanitarian Minister, Sadiya Farouq, for Flying Jet, to Assess Flood in Kainji Dam.

 

Nigerians on social media have blasted Federal Minister for Humanitarian Affairs and Social Intervention, Hajiya Sadiya Farouq, for flying a jet to assess the impact of flood in Kainji Dam.

 

The Kainji Dam in Niger State overflows its bank recently and that led to flood and erosion in the area.

The Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs posted the pictures of the minister on twitter after she went to make the assessment of the flooded area on Wednesday.

 

“Yesterday, HM @Sadiya_farouq flew over the Kainji dam for an aerial view and assessment of the impact of the flooded banks.” The Ministry of twitter handle said.

 

However, Nigerians have faulted the minister’s decision to fly in the jet to make an aerial assessment of the flooded area in Kainji Dam. They argued that a drone would have more jobs than the minister with little resources.

The drone would make a proper assessment of the area more than a human can view from the sky.

 

See some of their reactions below.

 

“How can you be taking aerial assessment from flying at over 30,000km above sea level & see the ground clearly from that distance in the sky??”

 

“What about a drone?

Drone tech & satellite 🛰 imagery will do the needful and give you a comprehensive overview of the before and after information on the inundated areas.

Flying passenger aircraft at higher altitudes will never give u results.

Assessment – evaluation – measurements”

 

“So she assessed the damage peeping through the window of a moving plane? And she’ll be paid an allowance for a work trip? How many families will the cost of flight help? Why did you have to report this rubbish for us? What have we done to deserve this?”

 

“Dear Minister @Sadiya_farouq your Ministry @FMHDSD can get something they call DRONE.

If you want an expensive one. That can be used again and again by your staff, they will then send a video report to you. STOP wasting SCARE resources. Eyin adjusting”

 

“Imagine if scientists discovered something called drones. They’d have been far cheaper, safer, and would have had a genuine aerial view than a whole flight where you actually don’t get an aerial view. What if you used a copter? Whoops! They haven’t been discovered too. 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾”

 

 

What’s your take on this?

Is it right or wrong for the minister to fly jet to the site?
