Abia State Government Orders The Demotion of All Structures in Waterways in Aba

August 11, 2011 – Abia State Government Orders The Demotion of All Structures in Waterways in Aba

Abia State Government has ordered the demolition of all structures on waterways in Aba, the state’s commercial hub.

This follows the expiration of an earlier ultimatum given to owners of such structures by the government.

The Media Adviser to Governor Theodore Orji, Bonnie Iwuoha, said that the task force earlier raised was now poised to carry out its task.

Iwuoha said that the government had given enough time within which the owners of such structures should remove them but that the people had remained adamant.

The media adviser added that although some of the people were agitating against the move, “government is determined to clear the drains that have constituted a problem in Aba.”

He urged residents to cooperate with the task force, noting that “some people have been agitating but we want them to cooperate with the task force because they will be the ones to benefit from the measure”.

He complained that government’s efforts to clean up the city had always been hampered by the people’s poor attitude to sanitation issues.

“There is no going back this time as all buildings, vehicles, both abandoned and in use, that constitute obstacles along waterways would be removed,” he said.(Daily Times)

    I am very much certain that this is not the real issue to tackle in Abia State, If you reprieved them of shelter, where do you want them to go. Some leaders in that state are inhuman , only set to maximize their personal interest and center care to polish their selfish desires.

    What accommodation provision has the government made for these Abian before throwing them away with task force ? God is watching.
