Flooding In Anambra: Limited Storm Control In Eke Awka



- Advertisement -

The main capital community in Anambra – near the Eke Awka market was recently flooded by storm water following a short rainfall which lasted approximately 20 minutes. The photo essays below show the conditions immediately after the rain event.

247ureports.com gathered that the storm control mechanisms in place at the community have been nonexistent – and not managed by the appropriate government agencies charged with the handling of the clearing of the stormflow channels. The gutters which were originally constructed along with the link roads have filled up with debris and refuse. The managing agencies responsible for the collection of refuse and clearing of the stormflow channels appear to have failed to perform their duties – since the placement of the drainage channels – this goes back to the Peter Obi regime – and has continued till the Obiano regime.

The immediate community surrounding the Eke Awka Market has remained at the mercy each rain event. The commuters have also found themselves at the mercy of each rain event.

An enforceable government policy appears absent to address the current flooding problems.
