Again, woman begs for Hope Uzodinma’s help as heavy rain washes off her bungalow (photos & video)

A woman in Owerri, Imo State capital has begged Governor Hope Uzodinma to come to her aid as heavy rains begin to wash off the foundation of her house.

Mrs. Chinenye Okoma is experiencing untold traumatic times as she watches her building gradually collapse on her family.

Okoma’s house has been under threat since June, 2019 when heavy flooding destroyed the drainage in front of her house after contractors engaged by former governor Rochas Okorocha did a shoddy job while constructing drainage system in the area. The contractors had removed the existing drainage claiming they planned to expand it only to do a shoddy job that left several buildings in Nwosu Estate, along Mbieri road, at the mercy of heavy flooding.

Okoma who lives in the bungalow with her physically challenged husband and two children, called on the immediate past administration led by former governor Emeka Ihedioha to come to her aid but to no avail.

She is currently pleading with Senator Uzodinma to help in saving her building as she had no place else to go.

The building is located at Nwosu Estate, Off works layout, Mbieri road, Owerri, Imo State.
