Ogun State government has assured traders at Oluwanisola Cattle Market, Isheri, along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway that it will provide a better site for them as it plans to relocate the market.
Governor Ibikunle Amosun who, on Friday, paid an unscheduled visit to the market, popularly called ‘Kara’, in company with some top government officials, said he decided to personally consult the traders on the relocation to assure them that their interest will be well protected at all times.
The governor, who spoke to newsmen after a discussion with leaders of the traders, said the process of rebuilding the state will require sacrifices from all residents and indigenes.
Earlier, Amosun held a private consultation with leaders of the market.
Secretary-General of the market association, Mr Adewale Lukman Babalola, told journalists that the traders were “excited by the governor’s decision to come and inform us by himself and we will give his administration our support.”
