Commissioner for Information and Culture, Okey Kanu, who said that the decision to recover the lands was taken at yesterday’s weekly executive council meeting, also said that the government had given some weeks grace for street traders at Aba to move into the markets to safeguard the streets.

He said: “In the coming days, the state government will also begin the enforcement of the ban on street trading in Aba and other cities. The ban will elongate the life of the newly constructed roads and ease traffic, as nine newly completed roads will soon be commissioned in Aba.”
