Lagos State Government Makes U-Turn, Says Ladipo Market Remains Closed

The Lagos State Government has made a U-turn, saying that Ladipo Market has not been reopened, as it is yet to perfect some environmental and safety conditions, required before recommencing business activities.
The government had earlier issued a statement where it said Ladipo Market and some others had been reopened.

Some of the reopened markets include Oyingbo, Ile Epo Oke-Odo and Alamutu markets.

But the Managing Director/CEO of Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA), Dr. Muyiwa Gbadegesin, who made the clarification, noted that the market remained closed because it is observed that its management had not fully met stipulated mandatory safety and environmental measures earlier outlined by the Authority.

He said,

“Our primary concern is the safety of the people and environmental well-being at marketplaces.

“Reopening is contingent upon strict adherence to the safety conditions set forth by LAWMA. It is imperative that all necessary precautions are taken to prevent any potential risks.”

Gbadegesin added that while several markets had successfully met the outlined safety requirements and had been permitted to resume business, Ladipo Market would also be reopened to business activities, once it passed the requisite safety audit.

Earlier, Gbadegbesin announced that Ladipo Market, Oyingbo, Alamutu Ologede and Ile-Epo markets recently sealed for filth and gross environmental abuse had been reopened.
