Daily Trust - - BUSINESS - By Sun­day Michael Ogwu

The on­go­ing cen­te­nary fair at the Jeremiah Useni In­ter­na­tional Trade fair com­plex, Abuja, has wit­nessed huge par­tic­i­pa­tion by govern­ment agencies.

Min­istries, de­part­ments and agencies of both federal and state gov­ern­ments in­clud­ing uni­ver­si­ties were on hand to show­case what they do and cre­ate bet­ter aware­ness to the teem­ing vis­i­tors at the fair.

No­table amongst the par­tic­i­pants are the Federal In­land Rev­enue Ser­vice (FIRS), Nige­rian Cus­tom Ser­vice (NCS) and Nigeria Postal Ser­vice (NIPOST).

The Di­rec­tor Gen­eral of the Abuja Cham­bers of Com­merce and In­dus­try, Mines and Agri­cul­ture (ABUCCIMA), Joe Wenegieme, said: “We are pleas­antly sur­prised by their par­tic­i­pa­tion. They took own­er­ship of the cen­te­nary fair and have made their pres­ence hugely felt.

“We have over 250 ex­hibitors, in­clud­ing a few friends from Ghana, Sene­gal, Egypt, In­dia, Gam­bia, Zam­bia and Mali with a daily vis­i­tors of 800 to 1000 people,” the DG said.
