Anambra Govt Reverses Directive On Food Market

Barely one day after directing communities to establish food markets outside their main markets, Anambra State Government has ordered a reversal of the directive.

The Commissioner of Information and Public Enlightenment, C. Don Adinuba said on Wednes­day morning that reversal of the directive became necessary because the new food markets negat­ed social distancing being propagated by the govern­ment to curb the spread of Coronavirus.

Adinuba said the gov­ernment discovered that the new areas chosen by the various communities for food markets were by far smaller than their main markets and so ob­serving social distancing was impossible.
However, he said that only food items should be sold in the markets.
Also, a statement quot­ing Governor Willie Obia­no on Wednesday directed all markets to open.


Part of the statement read: “I am directed to inform you that the Exec­utive Governor of Anam­bra State has directed that all markets to be re-opened.

“All the closed food stuff market in all the LGAs be re-opened with immediate effect.
