The President-General of the Anambra State Markets Amalgamated Traders Association (ASMATA), Chief Humphrey Anuna has assured of their preparedness to defeat touts operating in markets in the state.
Anuna said this while fielding questions from newsmen in his office at Modebe Avenue Onitsha, Anambra State.
He noted that the issue of touts and illegal revenue had become a nuisance in the state.
“There is a lay down strategy to ensure that touts and illegal revenue collectors will be a forgotten issue in the State.
”We must win the war against touts and illegal revenue collectors.
"We will recover our roads and markets from them and that is my assurance to our esteemed customers coming outside Anambra State.
"Let them not panic so much. It won’t take long we unveil our strategy against these perpetrators.”
