Oyo: Gov’t Sets 21-Day Deadline to Clear Parked Vehicles from Ibadan Stadium

Oyo State Government on Sunday decried the illegal parking of vehicles and abandoned vehicles at the Lekan Salami Sports Complex, Ibadan and handed a 21-day ultimatum to remove the vehicles.

The state’s Commissioner for Youth and Sports, Wasilat Adegoke, gave the ultimatum during an unscheduled working visit to inspect the facilities in the stadium.

Adegoke, in a statement by the Director of Media and Communications of the state’s sports council, Tunde Ajibike, urged those involved to comply with the government directive within the stipulated period.

She said, “I want to appeal to members of the public that abandoned their vehicles within this premises to remove them immediately.

“The government, through the state’s Traffic Management Agency will impound the vehicles after 21 days. The stadium is built for sporting activities and recreation. It is not a dumping ground for vehicles.

“I also want to urge the shop owners and artisans within this premises to make judicious use of the facilities and maintain cleanliness.

“The government will not relent in its efforts in promoting sports and providing empowerment programmes to make life more meaningful and convenient for our teeming youths in the state.”
