UMUAHIA — TRADERS in Abia State have endorsed Governor Theodore Orji for the state’s Central Senatorial District in 2015.
They also called on other interested aspirants for the seat to wait for another time.
The traders went to the gate of Government House, Umuahia, where they were received by the governor, saying their action was based on the governor’s performance.
According to the traders, having done well in the governance of Abia State, Orji deserves to go to the Senate to represent the interest of the people of his area.
At the visit, President of Abia State Markets Amalgamated Traders Association, ASMATA, Christian Nwaubani, said the handiwork of the governor spoke volumes and, therefore, deserved all the supports he could get to get to the Senate.
He enumerated the achievements of the governor for the traders in the state to include the development of markets and rehabilitation of the existing ones.
According to him, no one can forget the wonderful way the governor tackled the issue of security challenges in the state some time ago.
