Ogbunike Plywood Dealers Asso­ciation, who re­cently relocated from Ogal­aonye Street in Onitsha to their newly built market along Enugu/Onitsha Ex­pressway in Ogbunike, Oyi Local Government Area of Anambra State, have ap­pealed to Governor Willie Obiano to help them devel­op the area and enforce the law banning street trading.

They specifically want the governor to direct all deal­ers in building materials in Onitsha to relocate to the new market.

According to the chair­man of the market, Chief Jo­sephat Ezenwa, the plywood traders and their keys and building accessories coun­terparts had entered into an agreement to buy plots of land and develop a common market at Ogbunike, where both parties would transact their businesses indepen­dently as they were both in the same line of business.

Surprisingly, according to the chairman, “after build­ing and commissioning the market, our counterparts vehemently refused to pack into the new market, which has rendered many shops empty and overgrown with bushes.” Chief Ezenwa la­mented that since the keys and building materials trad­ers had allegedly failed in fulfilling their own side of the agreement reached by both parties, it was affecting their business negatively. He also urged the state govern­ment to enforce the law ban­ning street trading in Anam­bra State.
