Enugu South LGA And The New International Building Materials Market (pictures)
It was an idea of Sullivan Chime that the buying and selling of building materials at Kenyatta market was obstructing the smooth flow of traffic and causing hardship on commuters in the New layout, Ziks Avenue and Uwani areas of Enugu town. And so he mapped out a land in Enugu south for the local government to build a new international market to contain the thousands of traders selling various goods inside the streets of Enugu.
But it took the recent intervention of His excellency, Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi to give an order that every trader in some mentioned building materials like cement and rods immediately relocate to the new market, before people started to move in. Now there is a serious demand for new shops, causing a frenzy of new shops being built to contain thousands of traders who are already trading in the completed sections of the market, which are marked by their tiny red roofs.
