Umahi Extends Abakpa Market Relocation to 2020

" />

Ebonyi State Governor, Engr. David Umahi has extended the relocation of Abakpa Market to 10th January 2020 and said each trader should sign an agreement to that effect.

Umahi gave the directive on Thursday during a meeting with the leadership of Abakpa Market Traders, and Aluminum Market leaders at the Governor’s lodge.

The change in the relocation date from October 15th as earlier stated by the Governor to 10th January was a result of the intervention from the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN).

He said that all the shops earlier sealed in the market should remain sealed for taking the government to court while any trader who did not sign the agreement should be ready to leave the market before 10th.

He said, “All the shops that were unsealed before should be sealed back today before 2 O’ clock, seal also the shops of those that took us to court in building material, then day-by-day seal his shop and declare him wanted.”

“I’m equal to the task to tackle anybody that wants to bring in politics. Some of you went to social media and wrote all kinds of rubbish that you wouldn’t have voted for me. This matter is at a time I don’t need your vote again if you want to put it that way.”

“I have no interest in that place. I was telling FERMA people because they said I can’t stop them from work and I said I have the right. The last person in this state has the right to stop them because their work is being badly done.”

“I’m going to move the date of the relocation of the market to 10th January 2020, to honor CAN, but to CAN, I must get an agreement from all of them. Anybody that is a market person that does not sign this agreement individually must leave by 10th.”

“Building Materials and Aluminum, I said it that day in the church that God spoke to me and said you should move to Ezzamgbo Building Material. You better go there now the final date for movement is on 10th January, 2020.”

“Why I allow you to still be there is because, by November, we are going to inject 7.5 billion into the economy to build houses for schools and teachers, we want to patronize you while you are there.”
