Contributing, the members representing Anaocha Constituency Two, Sir Ejike Okechukwu, and Mr. Fred Ezenwa, representing Onitsha South Constituency One, appealed for the governor’s intervention to bring locally produced food to market, to assist in alleviating hunger.

“The Minority Leader Mr. Johnbosco Akaegbobi, Mr. Augustine Ike representing Nnewi North Constituency, and his Idemili South Constituency counterpart, Barrister Ebuka Igwe emphasized Anyamelum’s significance as a major food basket in Anambra State, advocating improved access roads to reduce food costs in the market.
