Senator Tony Nwoye

The Senator Representing Anambra North Senatorial District, Senator Dr Tony Nwoye has commiserated with the families who lost their loved ones to the Ochanja Market building collapse on monday. Senator Nwoye has called for thorough investigation to unravel the root cause of the building collapse. He, however, urged the relevant government agencies to ensure that developers adhere strictly to safe standard measures in handling house building projects.

The Press statement reads…..

“EXPRESSION OF CONCERN, EMPATHY AND CONDOLENCES OVER COLLAPSE OF BUILDING IN OCHANJA MARKET ONITSHA.

I have received with shock the news of the collapse of a  market building under construction in Ochanja Market Onitsha leading to the death of over 6 persons and several others injured and trapped.

My heart goes out to families of the casualties and the entire business community over this disastrous and tragic development.

I urge the government to implement measures to ensure that building projects nationwide meet required standards.

I extend my condolences to families who lost loved ones and offered prayers for the speedy recovery of the injured and eternal rest for the deceased. As we mourn the dead, I wish those receiving medical attention in hospital quick recovery.

This unfortunate incident also calls for attention by regulatory agencies like the JMDB, Anambra State Building Material Laboratory Testing Agency and Others to ensure that all property developers comply with the required and applicable standards to avoid similar occurrence in future.

I am calling on the State and Federal Government to investigate the root cause of the collapse. Anambra State should set up a panel to look into this ugly incident. I am grateful to those involved in rescuing the trapped victims.

I firmly believe that we can stop or minimise building collapses if we adhere to standards and procedures, using qualified and certified Building Engineers and build according to specifications. 

Also of concern is the need for the capacity of NEMA in conjunction with SEMA as a first responder to be strengthened for prompt and effective response in times of emergency.

May the souls of the departed rest in peace, amen.

Senator Dr Tony Nwoye.

Anambra North Senatorial District.”
