Traders in Anambra State, yesterday, closed shop when the vice presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Obi, paid unscheduled visit to some markets.
Obi, who interacted with the traders, urged them to vote for the PDP to stop the total collapse of the country, as being witnessed presently.
He, also, assured them that with Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, as the president, the condition of traders will improve, with planned development of more sea ports in the state.
He said Atiku, who is noted for wealth-creation in his private life, will replicate the same if voted in.
On power infrastructure, which is a hindrance to the survival of small and medium enterprises, Obi promised that Atiku’s economic blueprint contained articulated steps to be taken for the revamping of the power sector in the country.
Markets visited were Building Material Market at Ogidi; New Tyre Market at Ogidi; Afor Igwe, Umudioka; Oye Olisa, Ogbunike and New Parts, Nkpor, among others.
Responding, the market leaders supported Obi. They noted that being a fellow trader, and having demonstrated superb leadership as the former governor, the vice presidential candidate of the PDP should be massively voted for, in order to export his Anambra experience to the entire country.
The PDP chieftains that accompanied Obi were Osita Chidoka, Oseloka Obaze, Harry Oranezi, Alex Obiogbolu, among others.
