Those who live in Owerri usually buy just beer and little champagne. But, when the big boys who live in Lagos and Abuja come home during the weekends, they usually buy lots of drinks; and I will ultimately make so much money.”

Chief Priest shared how his business used to boom during the festive seasons. “For instance, after Christmas in those days when business was booming in the South-East, after every Christmas sale, I would usually buy a new car or start a new business because of the huge profit recorded. But, business has now become so slow.”

He also highlighted the impact of insecurity on the South-East, noting that it makes businessmen feel unsafe. “The insecurity is affecting the South-East and making businessmen unsafe. This situation discourages wealthy individuals from visiting home, which in turn affects local businesses.”

In response to these challenges, he decided to move his operations to Lagos. “Just like the Igbo saying, you will have to move around with your wares to be able to make sales. That was why I packed my bags and relocated. It is also a way of bringing the things that those who travel home come to enjoy at my place in Owerri here to them in Lagos State.”CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
