SPECIAL REPORT: No Road Side Trading, Ondo Traders Are Complying – Ogunleye

By Damilola Adeyemo

AKURE – In the quest to follow up and monitor compliance with the recent ban on roadside trading by the Ondo State government, TECHNOCRAT MEDIA went out on the streets in Akure metropolis earlier on Monday morning.

The order was made last week as part of the measures put in place by the government to ensure that no trader is seen trading by the roadsides.

In a visit to the popular Oja Oba market, the State’s Special Task Force was seen on the major spots carrying out enforcement on the traders.

In an interview with one of the traders, who pleaded anonymity said “The government did not allow us to stay at the roadside, policemen came this morning to pursue all of us.”

Some of the traders who didn’t want their names mentioned also lamented that their goods were thrown away in the process of carrying out the enforcement of the government’s order.

In an attempt to interview some of the policemen on duty enforcing the order, one of them said “The government gave us the instruction to make sure there is no trader trading besides the roads”.

In a phone interview with the Special Adviser to the Governor on Transport, Mr. Tobi Ogunleye, said, “I hope the compliance will be sustained and also become a culture”

Ogunleye further stated that it is a collective responsibility of both the government and the people to ensure the order is effective.
