Recall that few days ago, Abia PulseNews Reported that the member representing Bends South State Constituency Hon. Emmanuel Ndubuisi (Ijiriji Bende) promised to restore the glory of the market by filling up the eroded surfaces and constructing drainages to forestall the recurrence of the erosion menace.
True to his words, heavy earth moving machines were yesterday sighted inside the market working non stop to achieve the desired goal.
Speaking to our correspondent who was on an on the spot assessment of the project, Hon. Ndubuisi maintained that whatever he has promised his constituents is as good as done.
“You know that this market is where most women in this our area come to sell their farm produce, so the market besides being an ancient landmark, is the economic hub of my constituency”.
“So by the grace of God, we will restore the glory of this market in the coming weeks”, he concluded.
