There is tension in Onitsha Market as traders in Abada Market in Onitsha, Anambra State yesterday  vowed not to pay the new levies/taxes in the market until election is conducted to elect new executive members of the market which was put on hold for some time now.
The traders allegedly  booed their chairman, Chief Paul Ibeneme Igirigi, when he addressed them yesterday morning on the condition of the market as it concerns the election at the market.

The chairman told  the traders the need to pay the state Environmental Protection Agency (ANSEPA) levy, which increased from N400 to N500. This drew the ire of the traders, who  vowed not to pay the new fee.
They insisted on taking  to the streets if the election is not conducted before December.
Some of the traders in the market, Chiefs Achumu Gilbert and Columba Enwelemadu expressed dissatisfaction that Igirigi has remained in office for over 10 years.
