The Governor, who was represented by the Secretary to the State Government, Mr. Tunji Bello, said the leaders of markets in the State have been warned and counseled severally on the need to rein in on their market men and women to desist from disturbing others through their trading activities on the roads, but some have become adamant.
He said in as much as government was not interested in shutting down markets, but it would have no choice than to wield the big stick if traders continue constituting themselves as menace to other road users.
The representatives of Lagos State Governor in person of Mr. Tunji Bello said in his threatening quote ‘’ this warning to Agbado Oke-Odo traders also applies to other markets in the State. Any market where their traders are blocking the road and constituting menace to others will be shut down till further notice,” Bello threatened.’’
We hereby implore all our community market men and women to desist from this bad habit of obstructing other road users and causing major gridlocks in Lagos State as this is against the laid down rules and regulation of market operations within the state.
