Obiano Storms Banks, Markets To Enforce Return Of Business



The Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano on Monday, stormed banks and markets within the capital city to enforce return to businesses and other economic activities in the state.

The governor had over the weekend, held a meeting with transporters, bank heads and other stakeholders in the state to urge them to return to work, regretting that the weekly stay-at-home instituted by the Indegenous People of Biafra, IPOB, which was later cancelled was crippling the state economy.

Obiano had urged business owners, banks and market leaders to resume duties today (Mondqy, September 13) or risk sanction. 

Though the sit-at-home was reversed, residents of the state continued to stay off their businesses and work for fear of being attacked, leading to a total shut down for five weeks.

The governor who led members of his executive council round the state capital visited banks and markets in the state capital.

At Eke Awka market, the governor thanked traders who braved it to come to the market, saying that the state must avoid giving urchins chance to take over the state.

Though only few vehicles could be found in the road, most businesses banks and markets opened for business, against previous Mondays that left the state capital as a ghost town.

However, the stste owned Transport Coperation of Anambra State, as well as other notable loading parks like GUO motors, Peace, ANiDS, Rivers Angels, etc that usually start loading to Lagos, Abuja, Portharcourt and other cities as early as 6am were all empty as at 8am.

There were also no passengers seen at the different parks except trickles of people going from Awka to Amawbia.

The usual hustle and bustle  synonymous with the Unizik temporary site junction was absent, so much so that, even beggars were unusually not occupying their spots on the fly over bridge while motor park touts were alos out of sight.
