Edo government serves warning notice to street traders

Edo state government has advised Street traders and persons who trade on the walkway to relocate into the market as the government would commence the enforcement of the law against street trading.

The Edo State Deputy Governor, Philip Shaibu, who served the notice in an interview, noted that the activities of the traders contribute largely to the dirt in Benin City.

The Deputy Governor also appealed to the opposition political parties to criticize constructively by supporting the government’s efforts at keeping the city clean.

“The walkways are not created for market trading, ab initio it’s a crime to trade on it as there is a law on walkways in Edo state.

“So they that are trading on that ignorantly they should know that there is a law and very soon the law will catch up on them.

“We will enforce the law to the fullest because elsewhere deviants are the ones that pay for those that obey the law, for those that obey the law to enjoy.

“You can be a progressive opposition only to the extent that you challenge government on the wrong that they do not for the good that they do.

“If cleaning the street for the benefit of all is to the benefit of all then the opposition should join hands with us when we start cleaning the street,” the Deputy Governor said.
