Dr. Fakunle who was represented by the Director of Environmental Health and Sanitation, Mr. Tunde Balogun condemned the act, adding that displaying goods on the road will affect the free flow of traffic and affect the pace of the on-going road project.

She warned them against dumping refuse on the road and drains, saying anyone caught in the act will be prosecuted.

Noting that Environmental Officials would be frequently visiting the markets to ensure proper sanitation, the Permanent Secretary advised the traders to always keep their stalls clean.
