The Labour Party, (LP) has tackled the government of Lagos state over its plan to close Ladipo and Oyingbo markets in the state due to claims of indiscriminate waste disposal by traders.
Recall that Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu-led government had recently announced that it will be shutting down both Ladipo and Oyingbo markets in the state indefinitely by Thursday 22nd September 2022 due to claims of indiscriminate waste disposal by traders.
According to the state government, the traders were guilty of reckless waste dumping, non-payment for waste services, and general poor waste management.
Reacting to the development, the LP’s National Publicity Secretary, Arabambi Abayomi, in a statement on Monday night, accused the All Progressives Congress-led government of being an “intolerant and highly crude government”, adding that “being completely dictatorial, Hitlerite and recklessly very undemocratic is what it is now being known” of the government.
He further expressed shock at the development and frown at the excuse, describing it as “deceptive” and accusing the government of being intolerant, discriminatory and oppressive.
He also quoted the Nigerian constitution, which guarantees every citizen the freedom to live and work in any part of the country, warning that people’s rebellion are born by oppressive and wicked Governance.
