Residents of Rivers State have thrown their weight behind Governor Nyesom Wike’s decision to sign an Executive Order prohibiting illegal street trading, motor parks, and markets around Rebisi Flyover in Port Harcourt Local Government Area of the State describing it as a welcome development.
Some of the residents including Marshal Odogwu, Ikechukwu Igweala and Promise Nwida in an interview with Radio Rivers Correspondent, Francis Golden said illegal street trading, motor parks and other business activities if allowed by the government would deface the aesthetics of the area thereby sabotaging the efforts of government in returning Port Harcourt to its fomer Garden City status.
The respondents who commended the development initiatives of Governor Wike emphasized that the Rebisi Flyover would only improve the aesthetics of the city but enhance traffic flow and tourism in the state.
The residents urged landlords in Rebisi Kingdom to reciprocate the gesture of government by protecting the facility and not allow any business activity in theb area.
They appealed to the state Governor to extend his massive developmental projects to other parts of the state to create employment opportunities for the youths and boost the internally generated revenue of the state.
