The Abia State Government through the Chief Press Secretary (CPS), Mr Enyinnaya Appolos, has revealed that the planned relocation of the electronic and technology market from St Michaels to Aba mall at Osisioma is for the greater good of all Abians and visitors.
He pleaded with traders who were affected by the relocation, especially those at st Michaels and its environs, to understand that the government is not out to ruin their businesses but rather working with them to improve their businesses and Aba urban environment.
He said; "It is not always a pleasant experience to be moved from one location to another. It is not also a good experience that residential areas have been converted to markets.
"We understand that the kind of trade done at St Michael's is essential to the technological advancement of the state but things need to be done in the right way to sustain the benefit to all concerned.
"The traders must understand that the government is not out to ruin their businesses but rather to improve it.
"The relocation might not be what they want now but in the long run they will appreciate what the government has done"
"We do not want Aba to be littered with markets every here and there. We assure Abians, most especially those affected by the relocation, that Aba will take a new look and shape by the time we are done with our plans", he said.
