Oyo govt issues seven-day quit notice to roadside traders

The state Commissioner for Environment and Natural Resources, Abdulmojeed Mogbojuola, gave this ultimatum during his visit to Ojoo community in the Akinyele Local Government Area of the state.

Mogbojubola, who said their activities have been constituting nuisance to public health, added that “the act has been causing unwarranted obstruction of free flow of traffic, passers by and vehicles” contrary to the Environmental Sanitation Regulation, 2013.

“Illegal operations should be halted, especially, on the road sides and drainages occupied by the individuals. And you must vacant this place in seven days.”.

He, therefore, advised that business activities should be relocated to more suitable places meant for them in the neighborhood markets.

This, he said, would curb road accidents and loss of lives and property.
