Lagos Govt Reopens Markets In Mushin

The Lagos State Government has reopened several markets in the Mushin area that were recently closed due to environmental infractions, including indiscriminate waste dumping.

VerseNews reports that markets such as Mushin Main Market, Ojuwoye, Awolowo, Irepodun, and Daleko have been reopened.

The Lagos State Commissioner for Environment and Water Resources, Tokunbo Wahab, who made this known in a statement on Friday, said the temporary closure was necessary.

Wahab said the decision to temporarily close these markets was made to address indiscriminate waste dumping observed in the markets threatened public health and the well-being of people in the area.

“Our decision to close Mushin markets was rooted in the urgent need to rectify environmental malpractices that posed a threat to public health and the overall well-being of people living in the area,” the commissioner stated.

In his reaction, the Managing Director of the Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA), Dr Muyiwa Gbadegesin, said the ongoing enforcement action against filthy markets was a continuous one.

He said the authority would not rest on its oars until every part of the state assumed a cleaner and healthier form.

Gbadegesin reassured the people of the state that strict monitoring and enforcement mechanisms would remain in place to prevent a recurrence of the previous environmental challenges experienced in some markets.

According to him, the authority will not fail to wield the hammer against non-compliant business facilities.
