The Chairman of Alimosho Local Government, Israel Olusola Adekunle and his Supervisory Councils recently made an unannounced visit to the Iyana-Ipaja market and they were amazed by the filthy state of the environment.
Adekunle observed that the sanitation habit of the traders was far below the required standard and ordered that the leaders of the market should make arrangements to clean up the place as a matter of urgency.
The chairman also noted that the abandoned vehicles in and around the market pose a security threat. He directed that all abandoned vehicles be removed within 24 hours or they will be towed to the council secretariat and the owners charged to court.
The council boss directed that all shop owners who had extended their stalls to the culverts should, with immediate effect, be relocated because the illegal extension is punishable under the council’s bye laws. He gave those affected 48 hours to comply or risk being charged to court.
Adekunle promised the entire market men and women that his administration would deliver unparalleled service to the people of the local government area, in the area of education, infrastructure, health, security and electricity. He added that all these could only be achieved with the cooperation of the people. “A healthy local government is wealthy and rich local government,” he said.
