Speaking to newsmen, a trader at Ahia Ohuru, who gave her name as Gift Uchendu, said being a trader in Aba has now turned to a curse as it is difficult for them to go to the rural areas to buy products like food stuff for sale , stating that despite being promised earlier, they are disappointed that Governor Ikpeazu is yet to give Aba the attention it requires.
