Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has instructed immediate reopening of Shasha market after its closure due to the violence that erupted from the market between Yoruba and Hausa traders.
As the governor stated:
“If you look at Oyo State, even when the COVID-19 was at its peak, I decided not to shut our market places because I know and also explained to the leadership of the country at the national level that in our state, we have people that the proceeds from what they get today will determine if they will eat tomorrow or not.
“Since peace more or less returned to the market and the community, we have given the go-ahead that the market should be reopened.”
So kind of u!
