SABO AND KAYODE MARKETS SHUT………..For non compliance to environmental sanitation exercise.

The Executive chairman, Yaba LCDA, Hon AbdulRaheem Olajide Jimoh has ordered the immediate closure of Sabo and Kayode markets in Yaba LCDA. The chairman, who monitored the monthly environmental sanitation exercise on Saturday 28th July, 2012 was bitter at the deteriorating condition of the environment of the two markets.

The drainages inside Sabo Market were in a mess and the environment littered with refuses while wares were displayed indiscriminately around the premises. Most of the shops have been turned to place of abode for the sellers. As at the time of getting into the market, butchers were busy slaughtering rams while some are busy sleeping instead of cleaning and tidying up the market environment.

The story was the same at kayode Market, Abule Ijesha as most of the stalls have been converted to a permanent place of abode by the sellers. Shanties were seen at strategic locations in the market and the whole environment was in a mess.

Similarly, the chairman frowned at the indiscriminate parking on Moleye Street, Yaba. He called on the residents to maintain one side of the road for parking in order to give way for free movement of vehicles in and out of the Street. He ordered the caterer that littered the street with ice mineral boxes, chairs and tables to pack them away. ‘’People should not turn the street into rental corners where they display their rental materials’’. He said

    The law of the land must be respected. Sanitation exercise is for our health and should be monitored time to time. Let keep and respect the law…..

  3. Tosin

    This routine exercise should be carried with close monitoring on regular basis to balance environmental pollution in our area. I thank you Jide Jimoh, for bringing sanity to our environment.

  4. Thanks for the closure of the markets. The market women and men were to dirty. Even to clean their sorroundings difficult for them before selling goods. Pls let them pay fined of 1million naira to teach them lesson of adequate sanitation exercise cos health is wealth. If you doesnt care,what of the buyers health? Also assign special task force to monitor the markets thrice a week without notice even to the markket leaders. Some of them collected money from the sellers times without numbers. Warned them not to harwk on the culvet becos ts dangerous and even cause traffic. God bless you, yaba o ni baje!

    Amiable, impeccable,team plyer, Chairman, Honourable Abdul Raheem Olajide Jimoh. One Good thing that makes your administration stand out, is the collective participation of the stakeholders in resolving issues. Apart from the fact that, you choose not to unilaterally take any decision, you do not only involve your exective team but also the CDC/CDAs who are direct representatives of the people of yaba. Your style of administration is unique. So keep on keeping! Allah is behind you.
