Traders and transport operators doing business around Tombia Roundabout and along Tombia-Amassoma Road have been asked to vacate the place immediately.
The order to vacate the area is to pave way for the second phase of the expansion and beautification project around the Tombia Roundabout, which is on-going.
This is contained in an announcement signed by the Commissioner for Information, Orientation and Strategy, Mr. Ayibaina Duba.
According to the statement, the Tombia expansion and beautification project is part of the urban renewal agenda of the Bayelsa State Government.
The statement drew the attention of members of the public that there is no officially designated market or motor park in the area so whoever engages in trading or transportation does so illegally.
The statement reads in part:
“As part of the urban renewal agenda of the Bayelsa State Government, the second phase of the Expansion and Beautification Project around the Tombia Roundabout is ongoing.
“In view of this development, members of the general public, traders and transporters who do businesses at Tombia Roundabout and on the Tombia Amasoma Road are by this announcement put on notice to vacate the areas immediately”.
The statement warned that anyone who disregards this final quit notice, does so at his or her detriment.
