Market traders in Lagos experience heightened panic due to the quit notice issued by the Lagos government

Date:

Traders in the Balogun and Breadfruit markets area of Lagos Island are growing increasingly uneasy as the approaching 14-day eviction notice from the Lagos State Government looms.

Matilda John, a single mother of three, expressed her struggles after the government demolished her container shop, leading to a decline in sales due to the lack of proper shelter.

Other traders shared similar woes, citing unexpected demolitions, loss of livelihoods, and challenges posed by Central Business District officials imposing levies.

The government, on its part, issued the ultimatum to remove extensions on road setbacks, citing concerns about building collapse, traffic congestion, street trading, and environmental violations.

The traders’ plea for understanding and support echoes in the face of the impending changes, with concerns raised about the suddenness of the demolitions and the economic hardships faced by those affected.
