Warri South Local Government Council says it has commenced process for the allocation of open and locked-up shops at the newly beautified Ugbuwangue Modern Market in the oil-city of Warri, Delta State.
It said the process for interested traders would be transparent and fair.
In a statement on Wednesday signed by the Council Chairman, Dr. Michael Tidi, urged interested traders to pick forms at the council’s Central Administration Office along the Warri/Sapele road near Navy Base Warri.
A copy of the statement made available to WARRI TODAY explained that the first step towards actualizing a smooth and unbiased process owning shops at the market is by picking an expression of interest form.
Tidi stressed that the expression of interest form comes with a “financial commitment payable at a designated commercial bank to ensure accountability and transparency in his administration’s resolve to boost the socio-economic activity of Warri and increase the council’s internally generated revenue profile.
The Ugbuwangue Modern Market which was built by DESOPADEC and handed over to Dr. Tidi led administration of Warri South, has since undergone infrastructural facelift and ready for full commercial activities after years of decay.
