This happens to be the time most business owners in the transport sector of the Nigerian economy which is 99% dominated by Ndigbo will choose to fleece the pockets of their returning brethren all in the name of making quick bucks. Methinks people from other climes engage in discount sales during the Christmas season, but here in Anambra state, it is a time the petrol filling station owner would shove his conscience to the depth of extreme darkness and rip off his own people because capitalism dictates his actions instead of the Word of God. everybody is so caught up in the moment of brazen stealing from their brother that every aspect of the economy of Ndi Anambra becomes affected.

I’ll suggest that a legislation should be made whereby buses shuttling into and through Anambra state will have to tender evidences of their fair asking of the wealth our returning brethren are coming home with.
