He said he understand the hardship in the state and how people find it difficult to get some food stuffs from the market.
He also said “i will make sure I do something about the opening of markets across the state, I have received a lot of complains how difficult it is for my people to survive at home this period. Part of the reason why markets are still closed is because we have not decontaminated them”.
He said “As we decontaminate the markets especially obio/Akpor and Port Harcourt Local Government Area, traders will observe the protocols involved for the lives of the people.
“All public and private schools will be decontaminated before schools re-open”.
