Traders in Awka South Local Government Area and leaders of market associations in Anambra State have been admonished to cooperate with the state government in the enforcement of policies designed to enhance the security and hitch-free operation of markets in the state.

  Chairman of Awka South LGA,  Leo Nwuba, made the plea while speaking to the press and underscored the necessity for strict compliance by traders with the well articulated government policies and programmes aimed at providing a condusive atmosphere for trade and commerce to thrive in the state.

   Nwuba noted that sanity should prevail in the markets around the state which is reputed to be a major industrial and commercial hub in the country and Sub-Sahara Africa, at large.

  The LG boss regretted the recent fire disasters affecting markets in Onitsha while sympathizing with the victims, and appealed to philanthropic individuals and corporate bodies to come to their aid through voluntary donations to the trust fund established by the state government for them.

   Nwuba, however, decried the ignoble attempt by some desperate opposition politicians to capitalize on the unfortunate incident for cheap popularity which he described as very inhuman and shameful trivializing of a serious tragedy concerning lives and livelihood of fellow human beings.

  On the persistent traffic snarls along the major roads around Eke Main Market, Awka, the LG chairman frowned against the recalcitrant attitude of the traders and street hawkers who obstruct traffic movement with their wares as well as some commercial buses and tricycles (“Keke”) involved in the unwholesome act of indiscriminate loading and off-loading without parking their vehicles properly.

  He warned that the culprits would be made to face the relevant laws of the land if they fail to refrain from such unpatriotic activities.

  The LG henchman further advised traders in the area to always fulfill their civic duties to enable the state government improve its internally generated revenue (IGR) needed for sustained development of the state.
