The committee made the assertion when they paid familiarization tour to the leadership of the market as part of their oversight responsibilities.
According to the chairman of the Committee, Dr. Peter Ibida, their visit to the market leadership was to identify the challenges of Onitsha Main Market with a view to proferring solutions to them, so that the market will continue to generate more income for the state, especially now that the country is facing economic crunch.
The committee frowned at the absence of the Chairman of Onitsha Market Traders Union, Mr. Dozie Okeke during the meeting even when he knew the committee would visit them.
Consequently, the committee summoned him to appear before them at the state house of Assembly.
