Gov. Seyi Makinde on a visit to Scout Camp Market
Oyo State governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde has announced a cut in the rent paid by occupants of the Ibadan Scout Camp Neighbourhood Market (SCM) from N62, 000 to N40, 000 for locked up shops, while rent for the open stall was slashed from N16, 000 to N8, 000.
In a report by News Breaking, the governor paid a visit to the Scout Camp Market (SCM) at Ibadan South-East local government area, last Wednesday, calling on traders still displaying their wares by the road side to desist from doing so, to avoid accidents caused by passing vehicles and enable free flow of traffic around the area.
The decision to reduce the rent was taken after the governor paid unannounced visit to the market, on Wednesday, to find a lasting solution to the abandonment of the SCM market and to reiterate the government’s zero tolerance for street trading.
The Chairman of the Market, Kehinde Tewogbade, said the traders were appreciative of the government’s gesture and promised to do all they could to support the policies and programmes of the administration.
