Yuletide: Awka South LG Boss Promises Minimal Gridlock



In a bid to ensure a memorable 2022 yuletide season, traders and transporters in Awka South Local Government Area have been warned to use the approved parks and markets to reduce gridlocks on major roads in the city.

The Transition Committee Chairman for Awka South Council Area, Mr. ThankGod Anagor gave the warning during an interview with ABS at the council’s headquarters, Awka.

In his remarks, Mr. Anagor said that the council had set up a taskforce team to control wrong parking, trading on unapproved areas and waterways that caused congestion of the roads and debase the aesthetic nature of the city.

The Awka South mayor revealed that the council area has equally mobilized sanitation committee headed by its councilors to ensure that the solution of the present administration is replicated in all towns of the local government area, asking community stakeholders to key in by beautifying their communities and villages ahead of the yuletide.


Contributing, the Head of Enforcement in the council, Prince Ikechukwu Ndigwe noted that the council will increase its routine decongestion move, monitor indiscriminate dumping of refuse as well as discourage traders from trading on road sides, as life is paramount.

Prince Ndigwe pointed out that the council has initiated collaboration with market and transport leaders to ensure that they sustain any achievement recorded but warned that the task force will maintain its tempo in supporting the state government to achieve its goals.

Some road users, Mr. Chike Ibekwe and Mrs. Virginia Okeke applauded the state government for it intervention especially in at the popular Eke-Awka market which before now was impassable.
