The Ado-Ekiti Local Government Council has constructed a new market for the residents of Ajebamidele community to reduce over-population in the two major markets in the area.
A correspondent of the News Agency of Nigeria who visited Ajebamidele, a densely populated neighbouring community to Ado -Ekiti, reports that roads to the community were also being rehabilitated.
Fajuyi said that the new market would be convenient for traders and buyers in the community and neighbouring ones in the area.
She said that Ajebamidele, with an increasing population, deserved to have a market where the residents could easily visit.
The council boss said that her administration was also planning to establish more markets in other parts of Ado -Ekiti to open up business opportunities for the people.
NAN reports that while the market spaces have yet to be officially allocated, food items sellers have started selling their products to interested buyers in the area.
One of the traders, Mrs Taiwo Olaosebikan, commended the Local Government for constructing the new market, describing it as a welcome development.
“This market is a blessing to us in Ajebamidele. It will save residents the stress of going to Oja Oba and Bisi Market, and also help us to build our customer base here,” she said.
A resident, Mrs. Beatrice Ayegbusi also said that they had been praying for a market to be built in the community for them.
” We really thank the Local Government Chairman for building this market here for us all.
“It will give us the opportunity to buy things within our area rather than spending money to transport ourselves to buy goods in the large markets in town,” she said.
