It is business as usual at Nkwo Agulu market in Anaocha Local Government Area of Anambra State as traders storm the market in full-swing doing their normal daily transactions, even on election day.

Though there is no governorship election in the state, House of Assembly polls are underway.

Anaocha Local Government Area is home to the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi.

The traders told Radio Nigeria of their dissatisfaction with the outcome of the Presidential election held on February 25.

On Thursday, the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba ordered a restriction on all forms of vehicular movement on the road, waterways, and other forms of transportation on election day.
