The Lagos State Commissioner for Local Government and Community Affairs, Muslim Folami, has appealed to residents of the state to stop street trading.
He urged them to rather rent shops where they can display their wares.
Folami, who spoke on Thursday during an inspection tour of the Oyingbo ultra-modern market, explained that street trading was the major cause of gridlock in the area and along the Lagos-Badagry Expressway.
He noted that the state government frowned on the act because it also constituted an environmental hazard.
“Although market administration is the sole responsibility of the local government councils, the state Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, directed that everybody should work together so we can all achieve a common goal of making Lagos better,” he added.
Member representing Lagos Mainland Constituency at the National Assembly, Jide Jimoh, asked the traders to embrace peaceful co-existence, adding that cooperating with their market leaders would speed up development in the market and promote economic activities in the area.
The Ojora of Ijoraland, Oba Fatai Aromire, appealed to the state government to involve traditional rulers in the administration of the market.”
