Lagos State Government Explains Why Oyingbo, Ladipo Markets Will Be Shutdown Indefinitely

The Lagos State Waste Management Authority (LAWMA) has disclosed that two popular markets in Lagos State,Oyingbo and Ladipo Markets will be shutdown on Thursday over poor management of waste by traders at the two markets.

According to LAWMA’s Managing Director and CEO, Mr. Ibrahim Odumboni, the traders at the markets have not yielded to several warnings from the authority relating to reckless waste disposal and refusal to pay for waste services which inadvertently, has made the market environment unwholesome.

Mr. Ibrahim Odumboni stated further that the repeated violation of waste management by traders at the two markets amounted to immediate sanctions after warnings were not heeded to.

He said: “Our attention has been drawn to the deplorable state of the environment around Ladipo Market, Mushin and Oyingbo Market, resulting from reckless waste dumping by traders. Despite serving them abatement notices, they have continued the mindless environmental violation. We are left with no other choice than to evoke the necessary sanction of shutting down the markets. This is also meant to serve as a deterrent to other nonchalant markets.”

“We have intensified our sanitation efforts by deploying trucks to clear black spots across the metropolis, especially business facilities”.

Recall that early this year, the Oyingbo market was reported shutdown by Folasade Mujidat Tinubu, the iya loja of Lagos over alleged dirty promises of the Oyingbo market.
