According to a member of the association, well known as Kelly or the Moving Train, the way the president focus attention on the Apapa-Oshodi gridlock is one the reasons he want him back in power, according to him, “Whenever I went for business around Ikeja from Alaba, the Apapa-OShodi road was a nightmare. Today, the road is fully rebuilt from Mile 2 to Oshodi and I travel on that road under 10mins as against 3-5hours before.”

For Uche of Person Entertainment, “going to Eastern parts of Nigeria like Ogoja in Cross River for business took almost three days by road. Now, I spend less than 16 hours. Ore to Benin is perfect. The East/West Road is one of the best roads ever and is nearing completion. And when the Lagos to Ibadan express road is complete, it would directly impact on my business.”

Another trader at the popular Alaba market, Nicholas of Nicky Entertainment, the president won his heart with the Enugu International Airport, which he considered the best in the Eastern region, “It has made business and travel extremely comfortable and cheaper.”

The marketers mentioned lots of positive changes activities by the Bayelsa born leader and appreciated him for the N3 billion loan just announced for distribution of entertainment product.”
