Fayose Bans Street Trading In Ado-Ekiti

Ayo FayoseGovernor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State has declared that any trader caught openly displaying wares on major streets of Ado-Ekiti, the state capital, would be severely dealt with.

This is just as he appealed to traders displaced by the ongoing reconstruction of the Erekesan Market in Ado-Ekiti, to move their trading to alternative sites provided by the state government.

In a statement yesterday by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Idowu Adelusi, Governor Fayose said street trading and roads blockade with wares would no longer be tolerated.

Mr. Fayose, who inspected areas such as Bisi Market, Ojaba and Atikankan areas of Ado-Ekiti, decried the recalcitrant attitude of some traders who refused to move to authorised places for trading.
