The Commissioner for Environment and Water Resources, Mr Tokunbo Wahab, on Saturday, reopened the Alayabiagba market in Boundary, Ajegunle, after the traders complied with the sanitation measures prescribed by the state.

This is according to a statement by the Director of Public Affairs, Lagos Waste Management Authority, Mrs Folashade Kadiri.

Wahab was quoted as saying that the government decided to reopen the market after it was satisfied that all checklists given to the officials of the market had been fully addressed.

Wahab said that the checklist included the placement of a double dino bin within the market as well as the erection of a fence at the entrance of the market.

The commissioner urged traders in the market to respect the environment and ensure proper waste disposal at all times.

“We must stop littering our market with waste, segregate and bag our waste and always patronise PSP operators. Stop illegal dumpsites on road medians, kerb, open spaces, and road setbacks and start policing our environment”, Wahab said.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that earlier in the day, the commissioner and his team alongside executives of Lekki Residents Association went around some of the drainage channels and and the black spots to inspect indiscriminate refuse dumping.
