The Electrical Dealers Association of Nigeria, EDAN, Alaba International market, Lagos has inaugurated its newly elected officers who will pilot the affairs of the electronic section of the market.
The new executives, chaired by Chief Fabian Ezeorjika, promised to uphold highest standards in the market while working closely with government at all levels and other regulatory agencies to ensure members compliance with rules and regulations.
At the inauguration ceremony, Ezeorjika expressed the association’s readiness to improve the image of the market, adding that the association under him would work hard to defend the ethos it was known for.
“The market will not harbour all forms of indiscipline and lawlessness among traders. We shall be working closely with relevant agencies to ensure that laws are enforced while erring members will be made to face the music.
“We are therefore calling on all our members to obey business agreements as we will not tolerate or protect any contrary actions. We promise to live up to the standard the members of EDAN expect from us,” he said.
Meanwhile, the outgoing Chairman of the association, Chief Martin Egbeyiugo, appealed to the government to raise its investment in the market especially in the area of infrastructure and power.
He said: “A lot of people have shown interest in the manufacturing of goods but became discouraged along the line as a result of government policy.
“Potential manufacturers are only motivated by the success of established manufacturers.
“As much as we also want to go into production, we want government to help us make this dream come true by rolling out friendly policies as well as provide for an enabling environment”.
