Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babatunde Fashola

Commercial activities has resumed in Ladipo Market one day after the Lagos State Government reopened the market for normal business. The state government shut the market two weeks ago following refusal by the traders to keep the environment clean and trading along the road.

Governor Babatunde Fashola, in company of his Imo State counterpart, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, last Thursday visited the closed Ladipo International Auto Market, Mushin, during which Okoroacha appealed to the Lagos State Government to reopen the market. But Fashola restated that the market would be re-opened if the problem of cleanliness is solved. The traders were required to stop indiscriminate dumping of refuse on drainage channels, engine parts and wares on drainage channels, construction of stalls on drainage alignments, conversion of market roads for trading and blocking access roads with spare parts, derelicts and abandoned vehicles, thereby making the network of roads within the market inaccessible to motorists.

When contacted on phone, Chairman Ladipo Main Market, Mr. Kingsley Ikechukwu said the decision of the state government to reopen the market has brought  huge relief to the traders. He said market will open today.”We really thank the government for the gesture. We will abide by the terms of the agreement signed.”



  1. The Lagos State Governor knows what he wants for his people and would always insist on giving them the direction to stay on the right path. No wonder, former FCT minister El-Rufai in his budget analysis of states and the FG, picked Lagos state as the only working economy in the country. Bravo to “FASH”, the true democrat, astute leader and articulate m example of good governance in Nigeria whom Lagosians must cooperate with to enhance his success. Terhemba Dzomon, Lafia-Nasarawa State.
