NAN reports that flood has been displacing the market traders for many years.

Okezie Ikpeazu-led

The Okezie Ikpeazu-led administration in Abia had to remodel the market due to the menace.

Aba River

Kalu said that the tunnel would channel storm water from A-Line axis under construction, to Aba River through Road drainage system.

Blessed Henken International Company Ltd

He said that the developer of the market, Blessed Henken International Company Ltd. would connect the wide drains to the Ifeobara Pond.

Aba River

He said that the connection would provide an alternative channel for the  flow of storm water to the natural collection points at Aba River in the ongoing reconstruction project of Omuma Road.
He expressed sympathy to traders, who were affected by the recent flooding of the market occasioned by torrential rains in the past few days.

Emeka Igara

Meanwhile, the Chairman of the market, Mr Emeka Igara, commended the state government for intervening in the plight of traders.

“This flooding has been happening before this present government decided to put an end to it by starting rebuilding of the market.

“ I sympathise with my fellow traders, and I commend the government for its efforts to end  flooding of Ariaria.

“You can see that the new buildings are of great standards, and this is what a market should look like.

“I am happy that the new buildings are of the best standards and are not the type anybody can mess up with,’’ he said.

Igara, however,  blamed the flooding partly on traders who blocked drains with extensions to their shops.
