Following a State Government order, it was observed that all major markets within the coal city metropolis have been shut down.
Leakblast reporters gathered that Enugu East senatorial district will be having a mega political rally at Michael Okpara square today and effectively, the shutdown was to enable all traders attend the function.
Enugu East senatorial district is made up of Enugu North, Enugu East, Enugu South, Isi-Uzo, Nkanu East and Nkanu west Local Government Areas respectively.
However, this has brought about mixed feelings and reactions amongst the traders as some complained that the closure would affect them negatively as the market was their only source of livelihood.
Mr. Eze Timothy who stood speechless for a while, told Leakblast reporters that his anger was that his child was sick and the only hope of raising money for his medical care was through his sales in the market today. Other traders who pleaded to remain unanimous expressed their anger stressing that the government doesn’t care for them but still imposes hardship on them.
