Agabus Pwanagba, Jos

The Plateau state government has indicated that full implementation of law forbidding street trading, operation of illegal motor parks and indiscriminate parking of vehicles along major roads in all parts of the state has begun.

Commissioner for Information and Communication, Olivia Dazyam, while briefing journalists in Jos on Thursday said, “in order for all stakeholders to appreciate the gravity of our security challenges, government and security Chiefs has met with the leaders of Traders Association and the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) late last month for notice and sensitization, regarding the enforcement of the law, revealing that the compliance to the law  would be carried out through collaboration by the various security agencies in the state.

The commissioner stated that it was due to this the “resolution, of a task Force was on the same day inaugurated by the State Commissioner of Police to enforce the ban”.

She therefore urged the shop owners particularly those around the central business area of the city and motorists to find alternative areas to do their business and park their vehicles.

“All these measures are in no way punitive, but aimed at ensuring public safety, sanity, economic prosperity and general well-being of all people” Dazyam stressed.
