Petty traders in Yola, the Adamawa State capital, have expressed concern over the demolition of their shops along major roads by the state government preparatory to the visit of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo tomorrow.

The traders expressed that the government’s action was nothing short of wickedness as the act has thrown many families into untold economic hardship.

The traders said that the whole thing was like a dream to them as they were not given notice to relocate.

Reacting on the development, state Commissioner for Housing and Urban Development, Abubakar Idris Magaji, said the exercise has nothing to do with the visit of the Vice President, insisting that the demolition exercise only coincided with the visit.

He said those affected by the demolition exercise built shops on the drainage system, or blocked the right of way by building close to the roads especially in the state capital.

Magaji stressed that the law stipulates that when building or erecting structure temporarily or permanently, along trunk A Road, a distance of 45 metres should be given, while along Trunk B and C Roads, a distance of 30 and 25 metres respectively should be given. (LEADERSHIP)
