Anambra- Governor Soludo Relocates Popular Onitsha Drug Market in Bridge Head to Oba

The Anambra State governor, Professor Chukwuma Soludo has at long last taken the giant step that would see the famous Onitsha drug market relocate from its long-established location at bridge head to Oba in Idemili South LGA. Before this, there had been numerous attempts by past officials in the state to move the market alleged to be one of the largest in Nigeria, however, the drug merchants themselves had kept on stalling the move.

Governor Soludo, while doing the ground-breaking ceremony this weekend for what he has already tagged the International Drug Coordinated Wholesale Centre at Oba, commented that the project would be financed by Sterling Bank Plc with a deadline of 2 years for the completion. Explaining the importance of the project, Governor Soludo has already explained that the project was in line with his government’s overall vision of erecting a peaceful and prosperous homeland.

He additionally stated that the Oba market would be the only official place for distribution of wholesale drugs in Anambra once the deadline expires, expressing hope that the new center would be technologically driven, to align with the megacity, his administration had in mind to build.
