Government Special Announcement
Having successfully removed traders at ISI Gate umuahia, all motor parks within Isi-gate and its environs are advised in their own interest to leave immediately. Loading of any kind would encourage street trading.
All those loading for Ubani Market and other areas should move to Ossah road by umuagu side.
Ossah road by Umuagu/ Military Checkpoint near Ezumezu Event Centre is now the center point where Keke and buses going to Ubani Market will converge, while Ossah road by Uwalaka street will serve as keke loading bay for all those travelling to Aba, Owerri, Lagos. The idea is to end touting at Isi gate any violation will attract severe sanctions.
Landlords and house owners should also note that all the residential buildings converted to shops will face demolition if they refuse to revert back to the original building plan.
