The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has said that he is giving all street traders, car dealers, mechanic and private taxi parks operators one month to leave the road and find alternative locations to carry on their business.
Wike also said that he called up the meeting to avoid conflicts and also to discuss the time frame for the action to take place as his administration is committed to make PH city clean.
He also pointed out that the police and other security agencies will enforce the directive.
The Governor made the statement during a meeting at the Government House, Port Harcourt on Friday 31 May, 2019.
Wike said: “I am giving all groups one month to leave the roads. Within this one month, you should find alternative locations to carry on your businesses.”
“By the first week of July, the state government will swing into action. Port Harcourt must be clean, whether you like it or not.”
“We have called this meeting to avoid conflict. I called you to discuss the time frame for the implementation and not to change the decision,”
“Our roads are now mechanic workshops. Our roads are now markets and motor parks. There is this spirit that makes the traders and mechanics believe that you can only make money on the road. We will end that spirit. Your activities litter the road. There will be consequences for mechanics using the road for their trade after the one-month period. The vehicles being repaired will be seized,”
Usman Belel, the Rivers State Police Commissioner also asured that the police will work with the government to make sure they leave the road.
