Engr. Chinwe Sterling Uruakpa, a stakeholder in Ukwa West LGA of Abia state has implored Governor Okezie Ikpeazu led administration alongside the Ministry of Trade and Investment to consider the proposed relocation of the Cow Market from Waterside to Obehie, to a more favourable and convenient area.



Engr. Uruakpa made this appeal while responding to a recent facebook post made by the Honorable Commissioner, Ministry of Trade and Investment, Rt. Hon. Cosmos Ndukwe Ph.D, explainining in details the inconveniences the action would impose on the occupants of the land, hence  relocating the Cow Market from Ogbohill to Obehie.

He lamented that the proposed business was not supported by the leaders of the land, arguing that the State Government should make enquiries from the Leaders of the Land.

This is following the move by the Abia state government  through Rt. Hon. Cosmos Ndukwe Ph.D, the Honourable Commissioner, to establish a cattle market at Obehie.

Recall that Rt. Hon. Ndukwe had in one of his social media handles explained that the government of Ikpeazu sought to relocate the popular Ahia Udele (aka cattle market) at Waterside, in Aba, the commercial hub of the state, “to a more accommodating and accesible site where trading will be less hazardous and more environment friendly.”

According to the honourable commissioner, it was in the government’s quest to abate the protracted worries instilled by “the menace of cattles, the indescriminate pollution of the Aba River and contamination of air in the vicinity.”

While commending the commissioner for not leaving the people of Asa in the dark as regards the why of the sudden decision to relocate the famous market, Uruakpa in his hearty call, urged Ndukwe to seek the opinion of the Traditional Rulers of the land and other well-meaning members of the community as regards the decision.

The prominent son of Ukwa West in a statement issued to FamousReporters who described the Honourable Commissioner as a leader who is evidently devoid of pride, regretted that the imposition of the proposed cow market on the people was strictly in the disfavour of the entire people of Ukwa.

The statement read in details:

“Thank you for your explanations, Hon. Commissioner. I really appreciate your effort and time in explaining this to us. It shows that you are not a leader with pride. But, take note that one of the qualities of a good leader is to have a listening ear to his/her followers.

“Let it be on record that you listened to Asa people by relocating this Cow Market to another place that will be so condusive and convenient for that kind of business. I will humbly say that it is very important you reach out to our leaders, Traditional Rulers and even Community Heads and make your enquiry minutely, you will understand that no single Asa man will accept that Obehie should be used as a Cow Market.

“Sir, we dont need this Cow Market or whatever name it is called. Let me save you the stress of reading so many Government Projects that have turned to be a mirrage in Asa. If the Government wants to remember Asa, they know good projects to be established for the only Oil Producing L.G.A.in Abia.

“Pls,see this as a plea from a brother. It could be our turn to reach out to others for this entreaty today, and could be another people’s turn to reach out to one of our sons tommorrow.
God bless u the more as you perform your duties eminently”, he added.
