Opposition Tasks Fashola On Oshodi


About three years after the demolition of Mosafejo Market in Oshodi and the mass evacuation of  the traders, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), has again brought the episode to the front  burner of discourse, as it took a swipe at the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN)-led  administration in Lagos State for ever deeming it reasonable to embark on such line of action.

The issue, according to the party, has refused to die as the soul of the teeming number of  affected victims groan daily for justice in the face of the resultant excruciating pang of  hardship.

A PDP governorship candidate in Lagos State, Mr. Owolabi Salis, said it is unfortunate that  since the incident, a good number of the victims had remained in a suffocating state of stupor  and consuming trauma from which they had since not recovered and may never.

“Since the unfortunate incident, I, for example, have had daily encounters with displaced  traders of the destroyed market for whom it seemed as if the world had come to an end as there  appeared no glimmer of hope in the horizon, especially for those among them, who had borrowed  on loan, only for government which had sworn to protect their interests to now preside over the  liquidation of the very soul of their existence,” said the New York attorney and financial  analyst.

He berated the incumbent government, which he accused of sacrificing the larger interests of  the masses on the parochial altar of narrow elitist consideration.
