Oyo State government gives 7-day eviction notice to roadside traders.


Oyeleke 
stated that the affected traders have till Jan. 12, to vacate the roadsides adding, “erring traders will face the wrath of the law after the expiration of the deadline.”

He stated that the current administration in the state had zero tolerance for street trading because of the hazards associated with the practice.

The commissioner stated that roadside trading was detrimental to the security of the traders and buyers, adding that “the practice constitutes an environmental nuisance.

“There have been reports of trailers and other vehicles losing control and killing roadside traders in Ibadan metropolis and other parts of the state,“ he stated.

Oyeleke urged all and sundry to embrace the ‘Clean and Green Initiative’ so as to add aesthetics to the roads.

He stated that Gov. Seyi Makinde had fulfilled his promise of not getting rid of trading or market on major roads in the state until alternative spaces and shops have been offered.

He stated that various areas such as the Scout Camp at Challenge in Ibadan and neighborhood markets across the states have been made available for the traders to occupy free of charge.
