Traders in Sagamu Local Government Area of Ogun State have been warned against roadside trading to avoid road obstruction and allow free flow of vehicular and pedestrian movements.
The Council Chairman, Hon. Jubril Odulate gave this warning during his visit to some markets in Sagamu, where he frowned at the rate people displayed their wares on the roadside, especially on market days, saying this had led to loss of man-hours and human lives.
He advised them to always make use of the stalls and other designated places provided by government within the market for their safety, urging them to comply with stipulated regulations and join hands at ensuring security of lives and property in the community.
‘’It is our responsibility to ensure safety of lives and property but we can’t do it alone, as safety is a collaborative effort. As much as government has a role to play, so also the governed, so, let us join hands to build our future together”, the Chairman stated.
