Traders Promise To Back Obiano


Traders in various markets at the Onitsha Bridge Head  have resolved to vote for Governor Willie Obiano during the November 18 polls in Anambra State.

The President-General of the Markets, Mr Sunday Obinze, made the above remark while addressing no fewer than 15,000 traders at a political rally. Obinze said traders would prefer to vote for the incumbent governor, to enable him to consolidate on projects that he started.

He said Obiano has provided an enabling environment in the last three and half years, for trade and commerce to thrive, adding that the security measures installed by the governor had helped to guarantee safety of lives and property.

He said: “We do not need a change of governor. We have absolute confidence that Gov. Obiano, who will over the next four years touch on all other vital areas he was unable to touch in the first tenure.

“He has also involved traders in the scheme of things; the first of its kind since the creation of Anambra State. Do you want a change?” he rhetorically asked his colleagues, who re-echoed that they prefer Obiano to continue.

The Chairman of UBA Joist and Plank Association, Anthony Chuloli, recalled that before Obiano became governor, there was no single market in the state that did not record one fire disaster or another.

He said: “We don’t want to return to godfatherism and we don’t want our market and property to be set ablaze again.  We are ready to sink or swim with Obiano in the Nov. 18, election.”

He advised candidates of other political parties contesting the election not to waste their money and time on traders, because they had unanimously resolved, what direction they were headed.

Chuloli also cautioned the parties to allow zoning to continue, so as to make for smooth transition, so as to enhance development of every zone.

“It would also sustain peace and unity and reduce waste of money and energy during elections,” he added.
