The market leader of Ilogbo Oja Oba Agbokejoye in Olorunda Local Council DevelopmentÂ Area of Lagos State, Chief Nurudeen Oyerinde Asade, has appealed to the state andÂ local governments to provide modern public toilet in the market.
Speaking with Lagos Bulletin recently, Asade said traders, customers and visitors toÂ the market always complain about lack of public toilet in the market.
He also lamented the absence of Lagos State Waste Management Authority (LAWMA) inÂ the market to evacuate refuse.
According to him, during the stateâ€™s weekly sanitation exercise on Thursdays, heapsÂ of refuse collected during the exercise are always left uncleared by either LAWMA orÂ PSP operators.
â€œThe market is big and because of its size, so much waste is generated. TheÂ operators of waste trucks donâ€™t come here and that is why there are heaps of refuseÂ in the market,â€ he stated.
Asade appealed to the state government and the council chairman to act fast on theÂ issue, while advising LAWMA to help in improving the sanitary condition of theÂ market.
