Lagos CBD Moves To Eject Street Traders, Mechanics

The Lagos State Government has given 72 hours quit notice to mechanics and street traders operating under the bridges, roadsides and walkways on the Marina axis to vacate immediately or risk arrest and prosecution.

The Special Adviser to the State Governor on Central Business Districts, Mr. Agboola Dabiri, who gave the directives recently in line with the present administration’s policy on the environment, said the State Government is determined to bring sanity to all nooks and crannies of the State by checking the illegal activities of mechanics or street traders.

He decried the dreadful unhygienic conditions caused by the activities of mechanics and road side automobile engineers operating under bridges, open spaces and walkways, affirming that no amount of resistance and intimidation by miscreants will make the State government go back on its resolve to clean up the entire Marina axis.

In his words, “We seek total compliance to this directive given to mechanics to vacate as there is no place for roadside mechanics, street trading and illegal shanties in the Marina axis”.

The Special Adviser reiterated the determination of the present administration to restore the original plan of Marina and its adjoining axis by checking the activities of street traders, mechanics, road side automobile repairers who have converted spaces under the bridges, walkways and roads to their workshops.

“The environmental abuse thriving in these illegal mechanic garages can no longer be tolerated which necessitated the decision to check their illegalities” he stated.
