Lagos State Govt Shuts Trade Fair Markets


In an effort to crack down on environmental infractions, the Lagos State Government has closed down the Auto Spare Parts and Machinery Dealers Association (ASPAMDA) market and other markets within the Lagos International Trade Fair Complex in Ojo Local Government Area. This enforcement, carried out by the Lagos Waste Management Authority (LAWMA) in collaboration with the Lagos Task Force on Environmental Sanitation and Special Offenses and the Lagos Environmental Sanitation Corps (LAGESC), aligns with the ongoing efforts to curb environmental nuisances.

Kunle Adeshina, the Director of Public Affairs at the Ministry of Environment and Water Resources, confirmed the operation, noting that it was executed based on directives from the Commissioner for Environment and Water Resources, Tokunbo Wahab. According to Adeshina, the closure was due to poor waste disposal practices, non-payment for waste disposal, and other general environmental sanitation infractions.

The recent crackdown on environmental infractions underscores the state government’s commitment to safeguarding the well-being of residents. Despite the impact of the closure on the businesses within the Trade Fair Complex, the government emphasizes the importance of adhering to environmental standards and urges businesses to comply with regulations to avoid similar measures in the future.
