Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has approved the full resumption of operations of both food markets and non-food markets in the state.
Recall that the markets were shut in March due to the outbreak of the ravaging coronavirus disease, COVID-19, and subsequently reopened partially on alternative days arrangement.
In a statement on Tuesday, the state’s Commissioner for Local Government and Community Affairs, Dr Wale Ahmed, said the markets are now to open daily.
Ahmed pointed out that the governor advised the continued observance of all safety protocols to prevent a second wave of the disease.
He also noted that traders and their customers must adhere strictly to the protocols for their safety and that of the citizenry at large.
The commissioner added that Sanwo-Olu took the decision to further enhance trade and commerce as well as mitigate the hardship of recent times and ensure that Lagosians can recover fast.
