The Alayabiagba Market in Ajegunle, Lagos, has been officially reopened after adhering to the Lagos State Environmental Sanitation Law regulations.
The development comes as a result of concerted efforts to ensure that markets in the state maintain cleanliness and hygiene standards.
Mr Tokunbo Wahab, the commissioner for environment and water resources in the state, announced the reopening on his social media account.
He stated: “After complying with the Lagos State Environmental Sanitation Law, Alayabiagba market in Ajegunle was earlier today reopened.”
The news has been well-received by the local community and shoppers who rely on the market for their daily needs.
The Lagos State Environmental Sanitation Law promotes public health and maintains cleanliness in markets and public spaces.
It sets guidelines for waste disposal, sanitation practices, and the general upkeep of these areas. Market authorities are responsible for ensuring compliance with these regulations.
Mr. Wahab also took the opportunity to remind the authorities of all Lagos State markets to prioritize cleanliness continually.
He stressed the importance of keeping market environments clean to prevent sanctions and maintain a safe and healthy shopping environment for both vendors and customers.
