Seyi Makinde, Oyo State Governor

 

Oyo State Governor Seyi Makinde has approved the reopening of Shasha market following the closure of the market.

The decision was reached on Tuesday after a meeting with Shahsha market stakeholders weeks after it was shut down following an outbreak between Hausa and Yoruba communities.

The governor has also ordered the immediate deployment of bulldozers to clear the rubble left in the wake of the crisis.

The re-opening of the market was agreed on after weeks of extensive deliberations with market leaders from both the Yoruba and Hausa communities who have committed to ensuring peaceful coexistence in the market.

The governor stated that due to the economic situation and the peculiarities associated with the state, he would reopen the market for the traders to continue with their commercial activities.
