Mile12 Market: Relocation will provide conducive environment for trading - Official

(Today)

Mr Wale Oyekoya, former Chairman, Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI), Agric and Non-Oil Sector Group, said Mile 12 Market relocation would provide conducive environment for trading.

Oyekoya made this assertion on Friday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.

According to him, the relocation will provide more space and amenities unlike what is obtainable in the present location.

''There is no doubt that the present location of Mile 12 Market is congested.

''Development too has catch up with it and it is now at the heart of the Lagos metropolis.

''I believe that the State Government will clear the new location of the Market at Ikorodu and provide amenities befitting of a modern market,'' he said.

Oyekoya said that the government should also be ready to spend money to make the new location attractive for traders.

According to him, this is necessary as traders have invested so much in making Mile 12 Market what it is today.

Oyekoya said that the population in the present location had grown as well as the number of customers patronising the market daily.

He said that these rise had resulted in increase in the number of commercial vehicles operating in the area and indiscriminate stopping, parking and picking of passengers.

The former chairman said that the State Government should ensure that the new area would take care of all the shortcomings of the present location.

He stressed the need for Agriculture Park to further improve the lots of the traders in terms of reducing their losses on perishable goods among others.
