DEAR EDITOR – Please allow me space to express concerns on this issue above.
It is encouraging to see many money making business activities emerging in every corner of the capital – a pop-corn here and an ice block there, a fish & chips here, a coconut there, a carwash here, a canteen there and the list goes on.
It shows that we are struggling to make ends meets by providing services to meet the demand of the general public.
There is also a new business that is gradually growing in every corner of the capital, and that is mechanical workshops.
Many residential areas and even some public places were the so called ordinances, by laws, acts or laws (whatever you call them) of the city council.
It is true that workshops are a source of income for some; it is also a source of an eye-sore to the general public.
You see whenever there is a workshop, that place will be littered with spills and fumes of fuel, old abandoned vehicles and many other industrial wastes which can cause health hazards.
We all know that we have only one industrial site in the capital, and that is at Ranadi and not in any other place.
I therefore think that it is good for the city council to consider dealing with this new and exciting polluting business if they (city council) are serious about cleaning up the city .
