'No plan to demolish Abuja auto parts market'

25 June 2014, 11:55

Abuja - Auto parts sellers in Abuja have been assured that there was no plan to demolish their present shops in Apo District of the territory.

Grace Zamani, Head of Public Relations, Abuja Metropolitan Management Council, gave the assurance while addressing the traders who staged preemptive protest on Tuesday.

She said the protest was not necessary.

She assured the traders that the land allocated to them in Wasa was going through due process.

"The problem has to do with communication; work is in progress on the land in Wasa and we will hand it over to you when we conclude.

"Meanwhile, there is no plan to demolish the present site until you are properly relocated’’, she said.

Spokesman for the traders, Chime Ife, said that the protest was due to threat by the Department to Development Control to demolish the market.

He said the traders had applied for an alternative space for the market which was granted but had not been handed over to them.
