He expressed the regret that hawking on highways had become a norm in Nigeria, saying many under-aged children were usually sent to the roadside to hawk wares.

Nigeria roads are filled with young and old hawkers; even under-aged children will be running after speeding vehicles to sell their products.

“When you travel on Nigeria roads, you will see an eight-year-old boy or girl running after vehicles and travellers.

“It is not safe to hawk ‘pure water’, bread, groundnut and other things on the road because drivers can lose control of the wheel.

“It is high time the Federal Government intervened and enacted laws to stop hawking on highways,” he said.
