TRAGEDY: Confusion In Abia Community As Erosion Site Swallows 2-Storey Building, 4-Bedroom Bungalow.
While stating that more buildings in the community are under the threat of the erosion, Hon. Ndubuisi hinted that the community has commenced a fresh palliative work following an advise by NEWMAP team to mitigate the flood impact.
“NEWMAP team advised that the community should do a drainage down to the river so that more buildings will not be threatened but I don’t know if the money available to the community now can do that.
“What we want to do now is to use a kind of sand bags to slow down the speed of the flood so that the devastation will reduce, which the engineers told us will reduce the devastation” he said.
On interventions from lawmakers representing the people at the National Assembly, Hon. Ndubuisi said member representing Bende Federal Constituency, Rep. Benjamin Kalu and the Senator representing Abia North, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu are aware of the challenges of the people.
According to him, only the state government has intervened through NEWMAP, saying efforts are ongoing to get other agencies of government for their intervention.
Describing the site as a gigantic project, he said the problem is ecological-related which the federal lawmakers through the federal government can help to solve, saying it cannot be resolved locally without the intervention of federal government using the ecological fund.
