Perturbed by recent incidents of storm water flooding on some of the roads in Nsukka metropolis as a result of heavy rains, Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State, has directed the State Ministry of Works and Infrastructure to immediately carry out detailed engineering survey and investigation of the affected areas.

In a statement by the State Commissioner for Information, Nnanyelugo Chidi Aroh, the directive is “to determine a lasting solution to contain the storm water flood menace in Nsukka while awaiting commencement of the proposed comprehensive erosion water management works by the Nigerian Erosion and Watershed Management Project (NEWMAP) which is at the last design and Environmental Impact Assessment stage”.

Aroh disclosed that “preliminary reports from the State Ministry of Works and Infrastructure, indicate that this unfortunate situation maybe as a result of blocked unsilted drainage channels, and recent channelization of flood catchment at Aku road by Enugu road, through Aludele road, which has become prone to blockage due to the increased activities in the environment.
