Don’t demolish Sabo market, traders tell LASG

- Advertisment -

Traders patronising the “Better life market” in Sabo market Ikorodu area of Lagos every Wednesday, have appealed to the Government not to scrap or demolish the market.

The Traders who come from far and near to sell their wares, said there were rumours that the state government had plans to demolish the market to give room for BRT corridor or for yet to be determined purposes.

The market was established in nineteen eighty-four with over two thousand traders converging there every Wednesday.

Some of the traders, Ayomide Arogunre and Rashida Lawal , who spoke with our Reporter, Tunji Owolabi, begged the government that conducting their business at the market had reduced their financially burdens; and created employment for many people.

They further explained that if the traditional Better life market was scrapped, this might lead to increase in food prices, and farm products which traders bring from rural areas like Igbogun-Ise in Ibeju-Lekki local government and water side in Ibeju division which supplies fish, garri and other edibles.

According to our reporter, recently some members of the state Assembly visited the Beter Life market and other areas in Sabo where, the majority leader, Senai Agunbiade pleaded that the market be retained but clealiness be adhered to.

Executive Secretary Ikorodu local Goverment, Wasiu Adesina could not be reached for his comment.
