According to the executive governor of Anambra State, Professor Charles Chukwuma Soludo in a lamenting statement,
“i learnt Asaba is considering building an International market and Onitsha business men are scrambling for shops and warehouses there”.
Anambra businessmen are buying and building estates in Asaba and Rea Estate in Asaba is booming.
Igbo businessmen are building Hotels and Joints boosting tourism in Asaba.Anambra people cross over to Asaba to hangout with their families to have fun, chop some money and return to boring and decrepit Anambra State.
Onitsha traders have opened shops and warehouses in Asaba to off-load their containers and sell to their customers from outside Anambra State. They can trade from Monday to Saturday. In Asaba, customers outside Anambra State feel more comfortable to come buy wholesale goods with lesser risks.
Because Monday is no movement in Anambra, most businessmen cross over to Asaba on Sunday, hangout or sale in Asaba shop on Monday.
A friend just told me Asaba flights from Abuja is fully booked and now have more designated large aircraft, because most Anambra people prefer landing their and staying in Asaba. Just watch out and see Asaba explode.
