The Lagos State Government has reopened the popular Ladipo auto spare parts market in the Mushin area of the state.
The Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA) had closed the market last month over improper waste disposal and several unhygienic practices.
But in a statement on Friday by its Head of Public Affairs, Hakeem Akinleye, LAWMA said it decided to reopen the market after substantial compliance with rules and regulations, to sustain a clean and hygienic environment in the market.
He quoted the Managing Director of LAWMA, Ibrahim Odumboni, as saying that the leadership of the market has signed an undertaken not to breach any environmental laws again.
Odumboni stated that the Authority would not condone any form of indiscriminate waste dumping and other environmental infractions, especially at market facilities across the state.
He said further that LAWMA would continue to monitor the situation at Ladipo market and other marketplaces, to ensure full compliance with the environmental laws of the state.
Odumboni warned that the Authority would not hesitate to shut errant shopping centers found to pose dangers to the environment.
The LAWMA boss, therefore, appealed to residents to imbibe the attitude of keeping the environment clean at all times, by bagging their wastes and patronizing assigned PSP operators, adding that LAWMA was totally committed to making Lagos cleaner and livable for all.
