The Imo State Commissioner for Commerce and Industry Hon. Simon Ebegbulem yesterday visited the Naze Industrial Cluster Market and announced that a temporary caretaker and Committee would be set up to oversee the market for 3 months before an election would hold and a chairman of their choice picked.
This decision, he said was reached so that the on-going brouhaha caused by thugs claiming ownership of the market and harassing traders would come to an end.
In the meeting with the traders of Naze Cluster Market, Hon. Ebegbulem told the traders that more security guards would be brought in to guard the market from thieves and riffraffs. He encouraged them to chase anybody that is not a representative of the Imo State Government that comes to harass them for money as the government has banned the collection of levies by consultants.
He further promised that the Imo State Government would punish anyone laying claim to the property of the state.
While encouraging the traders to live in peace, keep the market’s environment clean and pay their taxes, Ebegbulem told them that the market would be given a facelift as the dilapidating structures of the market would be renovated and new toilets built to stop open defecation.
