Kwara to enforce law against street trading

21 January 2014, 18:59

IIorin - The Kwara Government on Monday said it was set to begin the enforcement of its Environmental Law on street trading and related activities in all parts of the state.

The Permanent Secretary in the state Ministry of the Environment, AbdulRasaq Amuda, gave the indication in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ilorin.

Amuda said the move had become imperative since enough sensitisation had taken place in the last two weeks.

He said that the rate at which traders displayed wares along some major roads in the state capital was alarming and advised them to stop such acts from Tuesday.

According to Amuda, adequate arrangements have been made to arrest traders who display their wares by the road sides and obstruct free flow of traffic.

The permanent secretary advised the traders to look for alternative places to display their wares instead of causing obstruction and avoidable accidents.

NAN recalls that the state government had conducted a two-week sensitisation programme to discourage street trading and other related offences.
