Oluwatosin Omojuyigbe

The Lagos State Government has suspended the Eko City Farmers’ Market due to the rapid spread of the coronavirus disease.

The state Commissioner for Agriculture, Gbolahan Lawal, noted that the programme which was slated for the Easter period, was suspended to prevent the spread of the virus.

According to Lawal, the suspension of the programme will be reviewed after the spread of the disease is controlled.

He said, “The progress of COVID-19 remains unclear and we can reassure everyone that the health and welfare of our farmers, consumers and indeed everybody associated with the market remain our priority.

“We will continue to follow the state government advice to keep the situation under review and explore all options available to find ways of resuming the market when the conditions allow.”
