Senator Danjumah La’ah, on Tuesday noted that earth tremor that occurred in Kogi and Kaduna state on September 11 and 12, 2016, is a sign that Nigeria is not immune to earthquake.

La’ah who sponsored a motion on Earth Tremor and the Preparedness of Nigeria to Deal with its Intending Consequences, expressed concern that Nigeria is not goof at managing crisis, stressing that the nation still has a lot to learn as far as managing disasters is concerned.

The Senate thereafter mandated the Committee on Environment and Solid Minerals to undertake a tour of the affected communities and report back to the senate.
