15 Days After: Ambode Re-opens Mile 12 Market

Following agreement reached with all the stakeholders involved in the operation of the Mile 12 Market, the governor of Lagos State, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, has ordered the immediate re-opening of the Mile 12 Market that was shut after the mayhem that led to death of many people in the state.

LEADERSHIP  recalls that the Mile 12 Market was shut by Ambode on March 3, 2016, after a clash between residents and Okada operators in the Mile 12 area.

The governor in a statement issued by the state’s commissioner for Information  and Strategy, Mr. Steve Ayorinde said  the re-opening was as a result of the outcome of the stakeholders meeting held between the market men and women, traditional leaders in the community, residents and community development associations.

He explained that some of the major agreements arrived on consensus by the various stakeholders include: “Relocation of the market to another suitable location as the existing market can no longer contain the traders.  Ban on the use of commercial motorcycles (okada riders) in the area.

“Co-existence amongst all ethnic groups in the market and environs ; removal of all shanties and illegal attachments/structures within the market area ; market operation to be confined within the market area.

“No street trading and with the promise to trade in a clean and hygienic environment.”

Ayorinde further stated that the stakeholders agreed that it is only in an atmosphere of peace that their various business and trade can thrive.
