Kalu Sympathizes With Ariaria Market Traders Over Flood

Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu
Eminent businessman and former Governor of Abia State, Dr. Orji
Kalu, has sympathized with traders at Ariaria International Market over
Sunday’s flood that submerged their shops leading to loss of goods worth
millions of naira.

According to Kalu, the indiscriminate dumping of refuse in water
channels and the erection of illegal structures on top of the drainage system
were responsible for the recurring flood especially in Line A and other
neighbouring lines in the market.
In a statement signed by his Special Adviser, Kunle Oyewumi, Kalu
said, “it is disheartening to hear that flood wrecked shops and destroyed goods
at the popular Ariaria International Market at a time traders are facing
financial crunch.
“However, we have to take solace in the fact that no life was lost
while accepting the unfortunate development as an act of God.
