The Ondo state government is poised for a showdown with members of the Association of Tippers and Quarry Owners of Nigeria over recent sharp increase of sharp sand.
The state government has therefore banned the activities of members of the association in the state.
The position of the state government was made known at a press conference addressed by the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Special Duties and Strategy, Dr. Doyin Odebowale.
While decring the high rate of extortion by the sharp sand dealers in the state, Odebowale said government would not allow any association to extort the people of the state.
Already, members of the association have increased the price of sharp sand from 25, 0000 Naira to 60, 000 Naira per load.
But Odebowale directed sharp sand dealers to revert to the old price or be ready to leave the state.
Odebowale added that government has the responsibility to ensure that any form of hardship on the people is discouraged actively.
