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.
