Yaba Street Traders, You’ll Soon be Dislodged from the Roads

Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode has called for the immediate dislodgement of street traders around the Tejuosho market Yaba, Lagos.

The governor gave this order on Thursday, June 25, 2015 while visiting the premises of the new ultra-modern Tejuosho Shopping Complex, on an inspection tour. He said that his administration would not allow street traders to keep obstructing traffic and cause hardship for Lagosians who ply Lagos roads even as he urged them to move into the shopping complex without delay.

“We want the traders to move into the market immediately. We do not want to see anybody on the road. As much as possible, we will deploy more people to enforce the directive to ensure the road is free because the residents are complaining. It is a good thing that you have a large underground parking space that can accommodate about one thousand cars so that cars will not be parked on the road,’’ the governor said.

In his remarks, the Managing Director of MRI Investments, Idris Asunmo reiterated the governor’s stance and maintained that the facility was ready to be occupied.

“The Governor came around to have a look at the market and its environs. He is concerned about the obstruction of traffic in the market surroundings which is caused principally by the street traders.Having seen the situation for himself, he has directed the task force to come and enforce the dislodgement of those street traders. However, he also tasked us to ensure their smooth movement into the market since the stores (K clamp) built for them are ready to be occupied,” he said.
