As authority initially remains silent on the palliative measure put in place to ameliorate the stress and pains of thousands of traders displaced and detailed reason for the demolition of Jakande Fruits market in Ikosi Isheri Lcda, under Kosofe Area of Lagos State. Many concerned residents and stakeholders in community and city has called on the Executive Chairman, Ikosi Isheri Lcda, Mr. Abdulfatai Ayodele Oyesanya to assist the affected traders.
Following our reported story “Jakande Fruit Market Traders in Kosofe Protest against demolition at Alausa, onikosi palace ” a social critics, Mr. Rasheed Awofeso added his voice he said: ” Remodeling is vital ,the operators should assist the in the scheme of things( Make the stores pockets’ friendly) after the projects. From experience allocation of such stores are always beyond displaced persons’ pecuniary predictions. Tejuosho/Oyingbo model markets are living module.
The policy makers should help think in that line. Reasons we saw all protest/ attacks on public utility recently after the market demolition.
Also supporting Awofeso, call is Mr. Kehinde Alade” They should make way for those displaced on the ground floor or a special space for them at affordable cost.” Reacting further kehinde Said “If they will learn from Tejuosho’s scenario, the place was desolate until the petty traders were allowed in there.
However, Dotun Adebayo reacting through the www.Kosofepost.com comment section said ” Our leaders behave like gods on earth. Let them always remember that death would snatch all of us one day and we would be judged appropriately.
If truly this notices were properly communicated, how come non of them are showing up to defend themselves.
Few months to Oyesanya led administration to ends. I wonder why he was so desperate demolition and the purported the reconstruction of the market when he is still struggling to complete the new administration building he started about 7 years ago. Something is definitely fishy about the development.
I Commend the leadership of Mile 12 International market for sensing the danger ahead by embarking on massive renovation work of the market.
Though, it served the traders right because many of them were seen during the election campaigning for APC. however, We can’t say because some of them collected 2 derica of rice, indomie, Tradermoni etc that we should not lend our voice to non partisans among the traders who suffered the evil their colleagues brought onto them. Therefor, if the intention of the council chairman is not laced with scam as people alleged then he should provide alternative temporary space for them pending the completion of the project. Then, let’s wait and see if the proposed market is for the public or few interest after completion.
