In effort to further improve the commercial profile and strengthen the economy of the State, the Anambra State Government in partnership with JC Michaels Ltd (the Developers) and Keystone Bank Nig. Ltd has embarked on building a One Hundred and Ten Million Dollar ($110M) Anambra Ultra-Modern International Market at Isiagu, Awka-South Local Government Area.

The Anambra Ultra-Modern International Market, first of its kind in Sub-Sahara Africa, would contain ten thousand (10,000) lock-up shops, malls, plazas and is expected to become operational in the next 12-months.

The Ultra-Modern International Market would contain other auxiliary facilities like hospital, schools, banks, flyovers and basement.

Speaking at the palace of the Traditional Ruler of Isiagu when the officials of the tripartite Team paid a courtesy call on HRH, Igwe Augustine Nwankwo, the Team Leader and the MD/CEO of JC Michaels Ltd, Chief Jude Amuzie stated that the concerned partners came to inform him that they are committed and ready with the necessary human and material resources to start off work on the designated site.

Chief Amuzie explained that the location of the Ultra-Modern International Market would be a source of blessings to the community, attract goodwill to Isiagu and drastically reduce the traffic problems being experienced at the current Eke-Awka axis in Awka.

The Team Leader assured that the partners are aware of their corporate responsibility and appealed to the Traditional Ruler and members of the Isiagu Town in general to support the project for the interest of Anambra State.

Responding, the Traditional Ruler of Isiagu, Igwe Augustine Nwankwo commended the Governor of Anambra State, His Excellency, Chief Willie Obiano for his commitment towards making Anambra State one of the fastest growing and competitive economy across Africa.

Igwe Nwankwo assured of his community total support to ensure that the project is successfully done and completed in a record time. He therefore pleaded that the community be carried along in the course of the project development.

On his part, the President-General of the Community, Mr. Louis Okeke lauded the initiative and promised to ensure their safety throughout their stay as according to him, Isiagu Community will be the greatest beneficiary once the project is completed.

In a vote of thanks, the Secretary of JC Michaels Ltd, Barrister Ikechukwu Ibeto noted that the International Market project is one of the huge investment coming into Anambra State as a result of the business friendly environment created by the Obiano administration.

Barr. Ibeto opined that on completion the International Cargo Airport at Umueri and the Anambra Ultra-Modern International Market at Isiagu would complement each other in terms of business activities and invariably make Anambra State the major hub of economic activities in Nigeria.

Among the visiting Team were the Director of Works, Anambra State Ministry of Works, Engr. Michael Obiekwe and the Media Officer, Mr. Emmanuel Ifesinachi.
