A recent directive issued by the Commissioner of Transportation of Anambra State, Mr Uchenna Okafor, in an attempt to ensure that traffic flows freely at the Unizik Junction, has attracted varied reactions from the people of Anambra.
The Commissioner, who was on the ground this morning with members of the Anambra State Waste Management Agency and Operation Clean and Healthy Anambra, stated that this resolution has been reached to reduce the level of complaints and calls associated with activities of thieves at the aforementioned junction.
The information, which came as a surprise to many, has attracted numerous reactions.
A ‘keke’ driver seen at the Unizik bus stop, Mr Ndubuisi Okafor, spoke to Unizik FM, saying that the directive was definitely going to affect them as the bus stop is too small to contain everyone.
Another commuter, identified as Mr Ejike bemoaned the state of the bus stop, identifying it as dirty and congested.
A civil servant, Mrs Nkechi Ochi, who was seen struggling to get a bus to work, mentioned that the development was a positive one as the level of traffic usually caused by activity at the junction, will reduce.
A student of Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Miss Chinaza Precious Oyeka, expressed worry over the development, saying that she did not trust the new rule to stick.
While speaking to newsmen, the Commissioner added that petty traders have also been warned to desist from selling at the junction, as their goods will be confiscated if they are caught flouting the new regulation.
