The All Progressives Congress, APC, weekend, took a swipe at the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP,over Federal Government’s failure to construct the permanent site of Enugu International Trade Fair complex six years on. The federal government had designated Lagos,Kaduna and Enugu,International Trade Fair complexes but had completely constructed that of Lagos and Kaduna, leaving Enugu untouched.
Spokesperson of APC in the South-East geopolitical zone,Mr. Osita Okechukwu, wondered why President Goodluck Jonathan should treat Ndigbo with levity.
He said: “The 26th Enugu International Trade Fair is ongoing now. Every year,the organisers of the fair keep appealing to Jonathan, to construct the permanent site as was done in Lagos and Kaduna. “In this country,we have three major ethnic nationalities,Igbo,Hausa and Yoruba. The citing of the three international trade fair complexes to Lagos, Kaduna and Enugu represents the regional structure of the country and is meant to engender even economic growth of the regions.
“For the PDP-led government to have abandoned the Enugu Trade Fair in ruins is a testament to the marginalisation Ndigbo has suffered in the past 16 years. “I was at the opening ceremony of the fair last Friday,a typical Ogbete Main Market here in Enugu is far better than the fair. The efficacy and objective for which the fair was construed has been lost because all the stands are makeshift or shanties.
“Is that the kind of fair that will attract foreign participation? It is sheer wickedness for Jonathan to abandon the construction of the site. Its time for our people to rout this PDP government that has not shown any sign of love to our people.”
