Amosun shuts down markets over garbage

04 January 2016, 17:05

Ogun - Governor Ibikunle Amosun has ordered the closure of all markets in Ota township in Ado-Odo/Ota local government area of the state.

He gave the order Sunday during his interactive session with the people of the state on the state owned broadcasting outfits, OGTV and OGBC.

The governor stated that the order became necessary considering the dirty state of the markets.

He frowned at the condition of the markets when he visited during his monitoring exercise on Saturday and directed that the markets be closed down until the needful is done.

Amosun threatened that anyone who flouts the order by opening his shop on Monday will be made to face the wrath of the law.

The governor urged the people to stop dumping their refuse on the roadside and warned that culprits will be arrested.
