Erosion: Popular 3-star hotel, judiciary buildings in Awka face imminent collapse

The Grand Riviera, a popular three-star hotel in Awka, is facing imminent collapse due to gully erosion occasioned by rainfalls.

The hotel, the Anambra High Court, which is beside it, and the Federal High Court which is a few metres away are all being threatened by erosion.

Daily Times reports that the Federal High Courts has already lost part of its premises to the erosion and two other buildings are seriously threatened by the environmental challenge.

The manager of the hotel, Mr Tagbo Igboka, said that gully erosion started washing away the foundation of the 12-year old hotel, only about two years ago.

Igboka said the hotel’s management had spent not less than N20 million on erosion control and repair works since the ‘unwanted visitor’ started encroaching.
