The committee chairman, Otobong Bob, offered this recommendation on Tuesday after leading an on-site inspection of the progress made on the nearby market.

He urged building occupants to adopt an attitude of preventative maintenance and see that vandalism problems were resolved.

The Contractor, Engr. Uwem Okoko, toured the Committee around the site and said it had been exceedingly difficult.

The central park of the market may be deflooded by using the drainage facilities along Ndiya street. We also had to run on asphalt. We also partially redid Johnson Street and the market’s internal roads.

A 20,000-liter water storage tank is part of our project portfolio as well. Reticulation has been completed, he said, and the water is now fit for human consumption.

Rt. Hon. Kufre Abasi Edidem, Deputy Speaker and Itu State Constituency lawmaker, urged the Market Union’s head to keep drains clear during his speech.
