Speaking after project inspection, on Tuesday , Governor Wike said that the construction of the market was in fulfilment of his pledge to the people.
He said: “This is one of our signature projects. We are putting in place a befitting market for traders in the area. Recall that the immediate past administration promised to construct this market, but failed the people.
