Kajola Market has reopened after an order from Osun State Governor Ademola Jackson Nurudeen Adeleke.
This comes after the governor issued a warning to market participants to stop engaging in any behavior that could threaten the safety of the community.
The Governor took his decision after hearing the results of a mediation meeting led by Commissioner for Commerce and Industry Rev. Bunmi Jenyo and hearing information on the ongoing problem.
According to a report from Infostride News, Governor Adeleke last week ordered the Commissioner to intervene and mediate disputes between competing groups at the market in the state’s Atakunmosa West local government area.
The governor made the following statement: “I am a man of peace and will ensure there is appropriate protection for the lives and properties of the people, not only in Kajola-Ijesha but across every nook and cranny of Osun State.
It’s past time for you guys to stop fighting and make peace. Discipline issues will not be tolerated. Anyone who incites violence will be met with severe legal consequences.
To protect the livelihood of citizens who make their living via the diverse business transactions that take place in Kajola market, the market is hereby reopened without delay on Saturday, August 12th, 2023.
