Patricia Scotland, Secretary-General of the Commonwealth, has extended her sincere prayers to the people affected by the floods in Nigeria. According to the official statistics, more than 1.4 million people were displaced from their homes. 

According to the official statement from the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, more than 500 people have died from floods. 1,546 persons were injured.


Further, about 790,254 persons moved out of their locations to escape the devastations of the floods.

In light of this devastation, CSG Patricia Scotland, the sixth secretary-general of the Commonwealth, extended to the government and the people of Nigeria, an offer for help and assistance from the Commonwealth. 

CSG Scotland has reasoned that the floods in Nigeria are a result of Climate Change. According to her, Climate change is threatening communities and economies across the Commonwealth

CSG Scotland took to her Social Media account to share the message. In the message, she talked about the upcoming COP 27, which she will be attending on behalf of the Commonwealth. 

At the 2022 United Nations Climate Change Conference, the member nations of the COP 27 will indulge in debates and discussions regarding the growing disadvantages of Climate Change.

For the flood-struck Nigeria, CSG Patricia Scotland published the following message on her Facebook Profile:


My prayers are with those impacted by floods in Nigeria which have killed 500 people, left 1.4 million displaced from their homes and destroyed 70,000+ hectares of farmland.

The Commonwealth offers support and assistance to the High Commission and the Government in this time of great need.

The impacts of climate change threaten communities and economies across the #Commonwealth. We all know it will get worse unless we come together with solidarity and urgency at #COP27 to protect the millions of citizens whose lives depend on our leadership.
