Anambra Stockfish dealers get new patrons




THE United Stockfish Dealers Association Anambra State(USDAAS), an international market at Owerri Road, Obosi, in Idemili North Local Government Area has been adjudged as one of the best markets in Anambra State.

The declaration was made by a Supervisory Head, Anambra Ministry of Trade and Commerce, Jossy Nwosu during the installation cum inauguration of the stockfish market’s patrons, organised by the outgoing executives.

  In her remarks, Mrs Nwosu said:”This stockfish market is one of the best in Anambra State. I do recommend this market to every new administration that takes over the state government”.

“I am not biased. I do not have any personal interest. My loyalty is to the truth. I always make my judgment objectively because we are two in the ministry that supervises the activities of virtually all the major markets in Anambra State.

“Stockfish International Market is one of the neatest, well coordinated, well organised. Among the executives, I do not see greed or power tussle and counter petitions as witnessed in various markets. I see credibility, collaboration, oneness, unity and love.

“I appreciate the newly installed great grand patrons, grand patrons and patrons. It is a proof that the pioneer leaders set the right pace. I enjoin the incoming leadership to cue in the steps of their predecessors, avoid greed and carry everyone along,” said Nwosu.

Inaugurating the patrons, the USDAAS President, Celestine Ezewuru said that the traders have a lot to learn from the patrons who had made history in the Onitsha stock fish market business since the early ’70s.

Mr Ezewuru urged those aspiring for USDAAS election next year to learn from their predecessors including the patrons and board of trustees led by Chief Anthony Muoka, who were competent, accountable, and trustworthy in terms of good representation.
