In an effort to restore the aesthetic beauty of the state, Delta State government has commenced demolition of illegal structures in Asaba, the state capital.
Chairman of the taskforce on clearing and beautification of Asaba capital territory and Senior Adviser to the Governor on Policy, Project and Performance, Prof. Sylvester Monye disclosed this to newsmen during the flag-off of the demolition in Asaba.
Monye said the exercise would clear all obstructions on highways and beautify the capital city look decent.
He disclosed that the taskforce had notified owners of the affected structures to relocate to authorised places within the state capital.
While stressing that the state government would no longer condone a situation where structures are erected along the roads, Monye appealed to those affected to cooperate with the task force.
He said that the exercise was not intended to witch-hunt anybody or make things difficult for them, but rather to save lives.
Monye, who led other members of the task force to start the demolition from the airport axis, along Benin/Asaba Expressway, said the exercise will end at the Onitsha bridge head.
