Governor Okezie Ikpeazu has ordered the Traffic and Indiscipline Management Agency of Abia State (TIMAAS) to, as a matter urgency, rid the popular Opobo Junction area at Ogbor Hill of forms of street trading.
Governor Ikpeazu gave this order to the General Manager of the agency, Engr. Bright Chinedu Ikeokwu while on inspection of some ongoing projects in Aba today.
The Governor had earlier spoken about the menace of the street traders around that axis during his radio interview at Magic FM Aba lamented that despite all appeals to the traders, they have persisted in their unlawful occupation of that area, including the entrance into Ehere Road through Opobo Junction.
He charged the agency to use every lawful means to move the street traders away from the area to allow free flow of traffic making it abundantly clear that “there is no approved market there”.
