Eventful In Partnership with FirstBank

The Lagos State Government has warned traders, particularly those in Ogba Market and its environs, to vacate the roads or face heavy sanctions.
It said no one was permitted to convert the roads, their medians, set-backs and walkways to markets or street shops.
Commissioner for the Environment Dr. Babatunde Adejare stated this while on inspection of the Abibatu Mogaji Sunday Market, Oluwole Mini-Market and Ogba Retail Market.
Adejare lamented that despite   appeals from the government, some traders were still violating the environmental laws. He said the government would longer tolerate lawlessness by any trader.
‘’Our focus is to maintain sanity in our markets, now dotted with all manners of shanties and illegal structures, such as attachments to tenements and containers,’’ he said.
He urged owners of street shops to fence them off the road, if they must continue to exist as that is one way to reduce the havocs to the environment.
He warned that if the fence was not erected within a time, the street shops would be demolished and the tenants penalised, according to the laws.
Ogba-Oluwole Community Estate Association Chairman Mr Lateef Abass pledged support to the government.
