Governor Sanwo-Olu Takes Action on Market Closure and Waste Violations

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s administration in Lagos has closed Oke-Afa Market, Isolo Market, and Katangua Market in Abule Egba due to violations of waste disposal regulations and unhygienic practices, posing serious environmental concerns.

Mr. Tokunbo Wahab, the Commissioner for the Environment and Water Resources, affirmed the move, emphasizing it as part of the ongoing efforts to address growing environmental health issues.

Wahab reiterated the government’s commitment to its zero-tolerance policy for waste and warned that any market engaging in irresponsible waste disposal would face sanctions.

He assured residents that the sealed markets would reopen only when stringent hygiene and waste disposal measures were implemented, highlighting the government’s dedication to cleanliness across the metropolis.

Dr. Muyiwa Gbadegesin, Managing Director of LAWMA, urged market executives to ensure compliance with waste management regulations and emphasized the simplicity of rules, such as using designated bins and avoiding reckless waste disposal.

Gbadegesin emphasized the intensified pursuit of the zero tolerance initiative this year, warning that markets failing to adopt proper waste disposal practices would face consequences.

He appealed to market executives to mobilize their members for responsible waste disposal, recognizing the crucial role of cooperation from all stakeholders, including market operators and traders, in achieving a cleaner and healthier environment.

LAWMA’s commitment to daily waste clearance from markets was highlighted, with Gbadegesin urging traders and market authorities to adopt responsible waste disposal habits and collaborate with LAWMA for cleaner environments.

Residents were encouraged to report waste management-related issues through LAWMA’s toll-free numbers or email to contribute to maintaining a clean and healthy environment.
