The chairman commended the association’s members for channeling their grievances through the Assembly, while assuring them that justice would be done on the matter.

“I want to commend you for being law abiding and I urge you to sustain the spirit in the interest of peace.

“We have heard all your complaints about the government order on the relocation of Masaka market to Muhammadu Buhari International Market, Karu.

“We will brief the entire House as well as meet with the governor in order to proffer lasting solution to the matter,’’ he said, urging them to remain calm.

Earlier, Mr Rabo Michael, the Secretary of Zumunta Traders Association, Masaka, appealed to the Assembly to intervene in the matter in order to boost their standard of living.

“We are appealing to you to intervene on the state government’s plan to relocate Masaka market to Muhammadu Buhari International Market, Karu.

“The Nasarawa State government did not relocate Lafia, Akwanga and Keffi markets. Why should our own should be different,’’ he said.

The association expressed appreciation to the Assembly for the audience granted them, while pledging to be law abiding at all times.

Also speaking, Mrs Salamatu Bitrus, a member of the association who could not control her emotion, broke into tears.

“Please save us. If not, we will not be able to get money or do business to pay our children’s school fees, feed our families and pay hospital bills, among others, if the market is relocated,’’ she said.
