In the aftermath of a devastating flood in Trademore Estate last week, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Commissioner of the Public Complaints Commission, Comrade Dalhatu Ezekiel Musa, on Monday paid a visit to the affected area to assess the situation.

Accompanied by a team of officials of the Commission, the Commissioner was at Trademore Estate to witness firsthand the aftermath of the tragic incident and to offer condolences to the bereaved families. Dalhatu said the visit was also aimed at gaining a comprehensive understanding of the factors that contributed to the fatal flood and call on relevant government agencies to to find solutions to the recurring problem of flooding in the area.

During the visit, Commissioner met with residents and listened to their grievances and suggestions. The discussions revolved around identifying the root causes of the flood and exploring potential solutions to mitigate future risks.

Residents expressed their grief and frustrations over the loss of lives and properties, emphasizing the urgent need for improved drainage systems and flood management measures in the area. They shared their experiences and provided valuable insights into the vulnerabilities of the area, such as inadequate drainage and encroachment on waterways.

Dalhatu faulted the authorities of the Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA) for not following up on actions to remove some buildings that were obstructing waterways which were earlier marked for demolition. He also wondered why the buildings were allowed to be built on the waterways in the first place. He called on the Federal Government to support the victims and to develop a comprehensive action plan to enhance flood resilience and ensure the safety of residents.
