Recall that the Governor, His Excellency the Distinguished Senator Hope Uzodimma had performed a ground breaking ceremony for the reconstruction of the Eke-Ukwu market at its ancestral site which was met with gratitude by the people of Owerri as their ancestral market
The Eke-Ukwu market which is expected to be completed in Eighteen months which will house about 1,850 buildings which includes a multi level car park, police post and fire service station, health care center, mini-mart, retail stores, Showrooms, Open stalls, Incinerator, power points, toilets and other top notch modern facilities has commenced.
By the foregoing, it would amount to disorderliness should a plan not be mapped out for the multi million Naira international market. It is on this premise that any structure will be torn down to make way for the new market.
It is instructive to note that the new market is a private public partnership between Imo State Government, Amanda Group and AEG Consultants.
In any case, no right thinking Government will leave such a structure that has been clearly been certified defective and unfit for human habitation talk more of being used as a Hospital.
