The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has appealed to traders under the aegis of the Arewa Traders Association to cooperate with the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Minister, Nyesom Wike.
Ganduje has urged them to work with the minister to create a decent environment for commercial activities in the nation’s capital, Abuja, Naija News report.
According to him, Wike is a former governor who has overseen the growth of a city like Port Harcourt, so he is competent enough to oversee the transformation of the FCT.
The former Kano State governor made the appeal when a delegation of the Arewa Traders Association visited him at the APC national secretariat in Abuja yesterday.
He noted, “So I urge you to cooperate with him so that he can create a decent environment for commercial activities in the megacity of Abuja.
“Security is his number one programme that he mentioned, and I am sure he will improve the transportation system of Abuja.
“As traders, you know how important transportation is in the city; he will improve the lighting of the city so that trading can take place at night if there is light everywhere in Abuja.”
Speaking further, Ganduje “We have taken note of your request; we assure you as a political party, we will also involve you in our political party activities.
“Although we have elections coming in November, Imo, Bayelsa and Kogi States, and in all these states, there are traders. You will get the key to those traders so that they participate actively in the election.”
