Members of Mile three Market Traders Union, Port Harcourt have lauded Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike for setting up the taskforce on street trading in Port Harcourt.
Some of them who spoke to Radio Rivers Reporter in Port Harcourt on the activities of the taskforce including David Chibuike, Felix Okoro and others expressed joy over the performance of the taskforce.
They also appealed to the Governor Wike to use his good offices to advise the Mayor of Port Harcourt City Local Government to allow Mile three Traders Union to Constitute Eleco for themselves and not to impose a council staff as the Chairman of Mile three Market Traders Union.
According to them, the Council Staff who does not have a stall in the market cannot know the problems of the traders and appealed to those involved to remove their hands in the leadership of the Mile three Market Traders Union to enable them choose their leaders, who will know the problems of traders in the market.
The Union disclosed that since a non-trader came in as the leader in the market, the amenities in the market had been vandalized such as the transformer, water tanks, adding that the drainages in the market are no long working while double taxations that chased over six hundred traders away from the market have continued to prevail.
