New Ile-Epo market will complement Lagos’ smart city drive
Stakeholders in the redevelopment of the N2 billion popular Ile-Epo Market in Abule Egba area of Lagos have said the rebuilding will complement the Lagos State government’s smart city dream. The market, in a dilapidated state, was demolished recently for reconstruction by a developer, Total Value Integrated Limited.
Speaking during an inspection of the market yesterday, Secretary to the Agbado Oke-Odo Local Council Development Area, Alhaja Gbemisola Ayilara said the council is currently compiling list of original allottees of the old market in a bid to give them preference when the new market is completed.
Managing Director, Total Value Integrated, Chris Onyekachi, said he and the council had been trying to ensure the displaced traders were relocated to the alternative market. He said the first phase of the redevelopment would be completed within four months, adding that the market, on completion would be affordable for the traders, and original allottees would be taken care of first before others.
