Traders at the Bridge Head Market in Onitsha Anambra State have passed vote of confidence to Governor Chukwuma Soludo and his team for his giant strides, particularly in areas of security, environmental management and trade and commerce in his 100 days in office, ANAMBRA PEOPLE reports.
The traders, under the Bridge Head Market Traders Leaders of Thought, said his social contract of providing security of lives and properties of the citizens has not been taken for granted, adding that he had always put his life and exalted office forward.
In a statement from its chairman, Chief Bonaventure Ucheagwu, the group also praised the governor for appointing Dr Obinna Ngonadi as Commissioner for Commerce And Industry, an appointment it described as square peg in the square Hole in line with his vision and mission.
It further noted the Governor’s timely intervention through the ministry of Commerce and Industry has brought salvation to business activities in the State, resulting to the activeness of about 45% of the people of the state in the state’s economy.
The group also praised the Governor over his recent visit to the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Mazi Nnamdi Kanu which he described as proactive step to nip in the bud negative security development which has constituted concern to all and sundry.
