Lockdown: Abuja Traders To Introduce Mobile Market


Worried by the lockdown, due to the ongoing stay-at-home order, traders in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) said that they have concluded plans to introduce mobile market, which would deliver goods and services to the door steps of customers.

Chairman of Garki Market Traders Association, Mr Sunday Chukwu, who disclosed this to newsmen in Abuja yesterday, explained that the concept would assist consumers and traders to have access to the needed products and services during the lock down period.

Chukwu explained further that the idea was born out of the passion FCT traders have for its consumers, adding that the exercise would be carried out in conjunction with the Abuja Markets Management Limited (AMML).
“We have also agreed that we are going to sacrifice and assist the government in providing goods and services during this period in line with FCT government COVID 19 guidelines.”

He added that mobile market concept has been worked out in such a way that traders would give out their contacts to prospective costumers so that whatever they need on daily basis would be packaged and delivered on their door steps, while payment would be made on delivery.

“It cuts across all goods in the open market, be it provisions, food stuff, even cosmetic and other goods in the open market will delivered. The essence of this is to reduce the number of people that are coming to the market during this period.”
