The discussion bordered specifically on how to manage the state’s markets and transport going forward.

The governor also noted that all markets in Anambra State would need to be remodelled  to allow free flow of human and vehicular traffic in and out of the locations, especially during emergencies.

He harped on the need for all to agree with the fact that things must not go on as usual if the state truly desired the disruptive change embedded in the ‘Soludo Solution’ philosophy.

On the Indigenous People of Biafra’s (IPOB) sit-at-home action on Mondays, Governor Soludo  agreed with the market leaders that the movement should end on April 4, 2022, even as the governor reassured the people on security of lives and property going forward.

‘’Anambra IGR will fully belong to Ndi Anambra,’’ the governor insisted.

The groups in response, reassured the governor of their support and expressed gratitude for his resolve to serve the state in a special way.
