Sanwo-Olu approves full reopening of markets in Lagos


The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, on Tuesday approved the full reopening of markets in the state.

This was disclosed in a statement on Tuesday by the Lagos Commissioner for Local Government and Community Affairs, Dr Wale Ahmed.

According to the statement, both food markets and non-food markets can reopen every day of the week.

It would be recalled that before the latest development, food and non-food markets were allowed to operate three days a week, after the state government regulated the opening of the markets to curb the spread of COVID-19 in the state.
