Briga News Nigeria

The Executive Chairman of Warri South local government area, Dr Michael Tidi has raised an alarm over indiscriminate closure of roads for social events in the LG area.
Three major public roads, Cemetery, Iyara and Ijaw roads were closed simultaneously and construction works on road expansion and gutters were ongoing in Okere Road and Lower/Upper Erejuwa Road during the weekend.
While warning against such practice, the LG boss who fielded questions on public outcry on the unpatriotic practice, denied given any individual or individuals permission to close any road on Saturday.

He stressed that there were many event centres scattered all over Warri metropolis, wondering why celebrants will choose to close public roads for the celebration of their events.
Tidi said that the local government council also frowned at the use of public primary schools for social events as he observed that school properties were destroyed during such social events.

Tidi who stated that the practice should be condemned by well-meaning residents, disclosed that officials of the local government council were sent to apprehend offenders.
