Abia govt bans street trading


Abia state government has made the move to enforce ban on street trading in the state, especially in Aba, the commercial nerve centre, from next year.

Prince Okey Kanu, Commissioner for Information and Culture of the state made this known while briefing reporters on the outcome of this week’s Executive Council meeting presided over by Governor Alex Otti.

He said: “Despite spirited efforts by the government to tackle the menace, it is continuing unabated. The government will not fold its arms and watch the anomaly continue.

“With the efforts the government has made, this menace (street trading) keeps rearing its ugly head, particularly in Aba.

“Most of the new roads this government has built, people use them to display their goods. This will not augur well for these new roads.”
