The wife of the Lagos State Governor, Dr Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu, has advised market leaders to ensure safety and hygiene in markets in the state.
She spoke at a one-day seminar for market leaders and stakeholders, organised by the Committee of Wives of Lagos State Officials in collaboration with the Ministry of Local Government and Community Affairs.
Addressing the audience at the event, which was held at the Epe Local Government Secretariat, Epe, Sanwo-Olu reminded the audience that markets remained the only place where most consumables are sourced, therefore, their hygiene and safety should not be compromised.
Distinguished guests and key players in our markets, reflecting on the many incidents that we have witnessed in our markets, you and I would agree that it is not out of place to reiterate the need for vigilance and intelligence gathering in our markets as this would help forestall cases of fire outbreaks and theft.
