Some of the traders especially those around the state capital and Obio/Akpor, Local Government area said the situation is not getting any funny as their families now do not have any hope or means of survival as a result of the state government action and continued ban on the reopening of the markets, hotels, and other businesses in the state.
“My son, our condition is really terrible. We have no money to feed and our children will soon start school. Tell me what we are going to do. Things are really rough with us.”
But, the Town Crier Online, can authoritatively reports the traders and Hoteliers are not resting in their continue pressure on the state government to re-open the businesses even as we learned that efforts are into gear for a showdown with government should their peaceful efforts fail to yield any positive results.
