Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, has charged traders from the South-East region of Nigeria to invest in manufacturing to boost economic development of the region.

He urged them to think beyond the traditional buying and selling, which  he said , has become endangered by current economic realities.

The Governor stated this on Monday at Government House Umuahia, while inaugurating a seven-man Exploratory Committee for the setting up of University of Science and Technology in Aba, with eminent Nigerian Anya O Anya, a professor, as chairman.

He charged the members to conceptualize and deliver a 21st-century University of Science and Technology to help feed the manpower needs of companies and industries coming up in Aba, Abia State and the South East.
