In a move to strengthen disaster management in the country, the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has established operations office in Owerri, the Imo State capital, to provide proximity of response in timely manner to locations within its area of coverage.

The Director General, Muhammad Sani Sidi urged state governments to give support to their own state  emergency management agencies to be fully operational while local governments are encouraged to also form their emergency management committees. He noted that states were encouraged to develop their coordinating systems in line with the national coordination mechanism, as this would reduce cost and shorten response time.
