Food and non-food markets in Lagos State can now resume full operations, the Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has declared.
The Governor gave the approval for the full reopening of the markets in the state on Tuesday in a statement issued via the state government’s verified Facebook page, which it uses to disseminate information to members of the public.
During the peak of the COVID-19 period in Nigeria, the Lagos State government shut down the market and after the federal government eased the lockdown imposed on the states, especially Lagos, Abuja and Ogun State, Mr Sanwo-Olu announced a partial reopening of the market.
He said food markets would only operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, while the non-food markets were allowed to open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
But today, the Governor said both the food and non-food markets can reopen fully and operate daily.
According to the Commissioner for Local Government and Community Affairs, Dr Wale Ahmed, the Governor took this decision to further enhance trade and commerce as well as mitigate the hardship of recent times and ensure that Lagosians can recover fast.
The Commissioner pointed out that the Governor, however, advised the continued observance of all safety protocols, noting that traders and their customers must adhere strictly to the COVID-19 protocols for their safety and the citizenry at large.
