GOV. KAYODE FAYEMI OF EKITI STATE, ANNULS THE ALLOCATION OF THE 800 SHOPS AT THE MULTI- BILLION NAIRA OJA OBA MARKET IN ADO EKITI.

FAYEMI

Ekiti State Gov. Kayode Fayemi, as ordered the immediate cancellation of the allocation of over 800 shops at the multi-billion-naira new Oja Oba Market in Ado Ekiti.

The governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Mr Olayinka Oyebode, said that the action followed due to the findings of Gov. Fayemi’s during the inspection of the facilities of the market earlier in the week.

The market, which happens to be adjacent to the palace of the Ewi of Ado-Ekiti, Oba Rufus Adeyemo, was rebuilt after the destruction of the old market which was demolished by fire about three years ago

However, construction works at the new market — the largest in the state – had reached about 80 per cent completion when the tenure of former Gov. Ayodele Fayose ended last month.

“It has been discovered that the market complex is not ready for use. A structural evaluation of the complex shows that some considerable construction works are required to fix the inherent structural defects which have made the buildings unsafe for use”.

“As this process would take some time, the governor has, therefore, directed that the process of allocation of shops be stopped immediately and all subscribers with proofs of payment for shops in the market should be refunded”

“The ministries of works and commerce have consequently been ordered to work out a seamless arrangement for the market’s completion and allocation,’’ the statement added.
