NIMET Says Some Parts Of Nigeria Will Experience Less Rainfall In 2019

No rain In Lagos?Praise God !!!






The Nigeria Meteorological Agency (NiMet), has predicted dwindling availability of water for various socio-economic purposes over most parts of Nigeria in 2019.

NiMet’s forecast in its 2019 Seasonal Rainfall Prediction (SRP), revealed that most places would have between below to normal amount of rainfall, while areas around Adamawa, Kwara and Oyo states would experience above-normal rainfall.

It listed states expected to experience below-normal rainfall includes:

 Sokoto
 Katsina,
 Borno, 
Niger, 
Plataeu, 
Nasarawa, 
Osun,
 Lagos,
 Ondo, 
Ekiti, 
Edo, 
Delta, 
Enugu, 
Anambra, 
Imo, 
Bayelsa, 
Rivers and Cross River.


This, accor
ding to NiMet, will create water shortfall and will thus negatively affect availability of water required for domestic and industrial uses like agriculture, groundwater recharge and inland waterways transportation.


The agency, therefore, advised that integrated water resources management skills be adopted in line with the predicted amount over various parts, especially areas that might have to contend with below normal rainfall.


On power generation, transmission and distribution, the prediction indicated that since power generation in Nigeria is majorly hydroelectric, it could be affected by rainfall amount as water shortage could lead to lower generation.
