HON SAM OGEH
Chairman, Ad-Hoc Committee on Rivers State Street Trading, Illegal Markets and Motor Parks (Prohibition) Bill 2019.
The Port Harcourt City constituency 3 lawmaker Hon Azeru Opara together with honourable members gave massive support to the Rivers State Street Trading, Illegal Markets and Motor Parks Prohibition Bill 2019 during its second reading in House.
“Urban renewal is core to my legislative agenda and I am glad we are making significant progress in this regard. The City of Port Harcourt from its foundation is a Garden City and no City can function within this context with street trading, illegal markets and motor parks.” – Hon Azeru Opara.
“The disadvantages of illegal street trading, illegal markets and motor parks are enormous. They contribute to Environmental pollution hazards and foster crime and criminality, accidents, noise pollution and unnecessary traffic jams which can lead to lose of job, lateness to work etc for citizens.
It is therefore my opinion that the BILL should be given consideration to help restore the Garden City Status of the State.” – Rt Hon Edison Ehie (RSHA deputy speaker.
