The Transitional Committee Chairman, Idemili North LGA, Mr Ralph Asha Nnabuife and his workforce recently dismantled illegal structures erected by street traders at the Nkpor Junction.
The action was necessitated by the state government’s directive to all local government councils to put to an end to street trading especially in Onitsha, Awka and Nnewi.
Mr Nnabuife explained in an interview that street trading, in addition to causing accidents, helped to facilitate blockage of drainages that sometimes lead to flooding of some areas.
Nnabuife reiterated his commitment toward ensuring that government policies were duly implemented.
He urged street traders to desist from such acts in their own interest. (MOI)
