The Warri, Uvwie and Environs Special Area Development Agency, WUEDA has shut down all unauthorized motor parks and mechanic workshops in its mandate areas. 

The Director General of the Agency, Prince Godwin Ejinyere, announced this at Effurun while continuing his sensitization campaign on the need to keep the Oil City clean.

Areas visited by the DG and his team were PTI junction, DSC roundabout, Sapele road after the flyover, and Airport junction where he warned operators of illegal motor parks to relocate within 7 days or face the wrath of the law. 

While asking motorists and keke riders using the PTI junction to park their vehicles away from the busy junction to allow free flow of traffic, the 

DG instructed the management of Delta Line to park their vehicles inside their own premises and clean their surroundings at all times. 

There was a mild drama at the PTI junction when a  suspected Fulani beggar and her grown up children took to their heels on siting Ejinyere and his team, leaving her little baby behind. 

The beggar was said to have been using the kerb as her home from morning till evening everyday before returning to Igbudu Market Area of Warri where she and her children reportedly resided. 

On her return from hiding, Prince Ejinyere warned the beggar never to use the kerb again and also warned all illegal shop owners at the PTI and other junctions in the metropolis to immediately vacate the areas within 7 days or risk arrest, as they were defacing the City.

Hon. Ejinyere also told all Keke mechanics who used roads as their workshops to tidy up such places and quit without delay. 

He also asked the owners of detached parts of a trailer, and other vehicles displayed for sale on the roadsides to remove them within 7days or face prosecution.

At the spare parts market area along Sapele road, the WUEDA DG told motorists to operate within the confines of their legal parks and not on the road, urging Deltans to support Governor Oborevwori in actualizing his dreams for the good of all.

At Airport junction, Effurun, Hon. Ejinyere warned transport owners and their workers who parked their vehicles on the road causing traffic hold-ups,  especially in the morning, to stop forthwith or risk being prosecuted and their vehicles impounded.

The WUEDA DG reiterated that the Agency would not tolerate anything that would deface the popular Oil City, as the State Governor, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori, was very eager to transform Warri, Uvwie and the environs to a mega and modern City that all Deltans would be proud of.

The DG was accompanied by the WUEDA Director of Administration and Finance, Mr. Simon Esi, other senior staff members of the Agency, as well as Aides of the Director General.
