The Executive Governor of Akwa Ibom State; His Excellency Deacon Udom Emmanuel will on Wednesday commission an International Market in Uruk Anam Local Government Area.
This hint was handed down yesterday when Naijaperminute Team visited the site of the to be commissioned International Market during the inspection exercise by the Special Assistant to the Governor on Trade and Market Matters; Akparawa Idorenyin Raphael and other members of his entourage.
The International Market which was popularly known as Urua Anwa Aya Obio Akpan Uruk Anam was in a near close due to collapse of various structures but not for the timely intervention of Her Excellency, Mrs Martha Udom Emmanuel. Considering the axiom that says ” Charity Begins at Home”, Mrs Martha Udom through the office of the special Assistant on Trade and Market Matters offered to bring succour to her people by constructing an Ultra Modern International Market that sits on a 24000Hectares of Land in order to replace the previous Thatch structures that were in the verge of total destruction by termites and other deadly insects.
According to Hon. Idorenyin Raphael while responding to questions by our correspondent, aside the Market, other important facilities will be situated in the site such as Health Facility, Solar Light systems, leisure Park, Micro-Finance Bank, Pharmacy, Abattoir, Police station etc so as to cater for any need of the market men and women and the people living within the vicinity. He continued by saying that the Market is just the starting point for the more developments that will be brought to the area courtesy of her Excellency. Even an Ultra Modern Timber Market will also be constructed in the area which will commence soon after the commissioning of the International Market….he added. He said, ” Her Excellency is a good and caring mother hence her people must have a feel of her benevolence and philanthropic gesture. She just deserves the best and her people must partake in it….he concluded.
Sequel to the fact that such unprecedented development has found a place in the area , Hon. Obong Okon Akpan Umoh, Village Head of Aya Obio Akpa Uruk Anam L.G.A in an interview with our correspondent eulogised Her Excellency, Mrs Martha Udom and Hon. Idorenyin Raphael for deeming it fit to come to their aid in constructing such an “All Inclusive Ultramodern International Market” for the good people of Uruk Anam. I am so impressed with the wonderful work done within such a short period of time and I pray that God bless you and give you the grace to do more for our people ….he said. Also, as a show of appreciation to the Wife of the Governor who is a daughter of the land and the Special Assistant on Trade and Market Matters, who is now a friend of the Area, he hinted that plans to honour them with lots of gifts and Titles have reached final stage. The date after the commissioning will be communicated to you…he noted.
Nonetheless, the plans for the epoch making commissioning event scheduled for Wednesday is ongoing as the various market men and women have been allotted their respective blocks to commence their sales from the new market that very day of commissioning while they will appear in a colourful Dakkada Uniforms with smiles all over their faces. Indeed, it will be an event to behold and not forget in a jiffy.
