The Governor of Abia State, Alex Otti, has suspended the task force on the relocation of mechanics and spare parts dealers from the Aba metropolis to the Ovom mechanic cluster in Obingwa LGA of the state.

The suspension was announced by the Deputy Governor of Abia, Ikechuckwu Emetu while addressing the business community in Aba on Tuesday.

The Deputy Governor disclosed that Otti empathized with auto mechanics and spare parts dealers over the economic hardship in the country, the depreciation of the naira, and the consequent effects the economic downturn has heaped on their businesses.

He, however, reiterated the need for the relocation of the Mechanic and Spare parts dealers from the busy Aba metropolis to a more spacious Ovom mechanic cluster, noting that the Aba metropolis would be free of heavy-duty trucks if the traders were eventually relocated.

Deputy Governor Emetu urged them to remain law abiding as they go about their legitimate businesses and to support Governor Alex Otti.
