Yesterday, I did a brief stopover at the section of Ahia Ohuru (New Market) at Ngwa Road, Aba, which was severely damaged by a fire outbreak on Saturday night. I was saddened by the sight of the damage and the loss of livelihoods for many of our hardworking traders.

I also observed that the market structures are in very poor condition and pose a great risk to the safety and health of the people. This is unacceptable and must be addressed urgently.

That is why I have directed the Mayor of Aba South, Chief Uche Wogu and the market leadership to work with the Greater Aba Development Authority (GADA) to come up with a plan to relocate the traders to a temporary site, demolish the old buildings, and rebuild a modern and well-planned market that will meet the needs of the traders and the customers.

Our administration is committed to ensuring that our markets are conducive, secure, and attractive for business activities. We will not allow any obstacle to hinder the progress and prosperity of our people.

I appeal to the traders and the public to cooperate with us as we embark on this project. I assure you that we will do everything possible to minimize the inconvenience and complete the work as soon as possible.
