The commissioner urged them to discharge their duties as a formidable force, and ensure they relocate their market to the new site at Ogbunike.

Similarly, in Freedom Market, Odoakpu, Onitsha, the commissioner called on the new executives to implement the government policies, and to key their traders into digital revenue payment systems to avoid all forms of fraud and multiple taxation.
