Nigeria, Eight Other Countries to Meet in Sept Over River Niger

Nigeria and eight other countries along the River Niger belt are to converge on Abuja in September under the aegis of African Organisation of Supreme Audit Institutions Working Group on Environmental Auditing (AFROSAI WEGA), and one of the major items billed for deliberation is how to avert the possible drying of Africa's third longest river-the River Niger.

Although Mali, Niger, Burkina Faso, Benin Republic, Cameroun, Algeria, Chad and Cote d'Ivoire are not the only countries in AFROSAI WEGA coming for the meeting in September, but they, alongside Nigeria, are along the River Niger belt and will be brainstorming on how to prevent the drying up of the river.
