Nsukka traders to mobilise support for Ugwuanyi, other PDP candidates
• Thank the governor for peace, developments, interventions
Representatives of traders in 37 markets of Nsukka Local Council, Enugu State, under the auspices of Nsukka Amalgamated Traders Association (NATA), yesterday, embarked on a solidarity visit to the Government House, Enugu, to thank Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi for his administration’s interventions towards their safety and wellbeing.
The traders thanked Ugwuanyi for the success of the first and second phases of the Enugu Traders Empowerment Scheme raffle draw, which empowered many traders across the registered markets in the state with the sum of N50, 000 each to grow their businesses.
The traders disclosed that the empowerment programme benefited a lot of them in the council, adding that the money had a multiplier effect on their businesses.
They expressed gratitude to the governor for deploying one fire fighting truck and one rapid response vehicle to Ogige Market, Nsukka, for the safety of life and property in the market.
Speaking on behalf of the traders, the President of NATA, Mrs. Ngozi Ozioko, disclosed that the governor’s interventions in Ogige Market are not only for the benefit of traders but also for the entire markets in Enugu North Senatorial District.
The NATA president, therefore, assured Ugwuanyi, who is the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for Enugu North Senatorial District in the 2023 general elections, that the traders will mobilise support for him and other PDP candidates in Enugu.
