Ambode To Relocate Mile 12 Market In December
The popular Mile 12 market, Ketu Lagos will be relocated in December to ease traffic gridlock along Ikorodu Road, the state Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode has said.
He said this during his inspection of Imota Light Industrial Park in Ikorodu Local Government and other ongoing projects within the axis on Wednesday.
He said that “We are moving everyone from that axis because their activity is causing gridlock on the road.”
According to the governor, the completion of the Imota industrial park should be around October while the relocation of the Mile 12 market will be done before the end of this year.
“As against their present location, the number of stalls we would be providing here is over 3,000. And the reason for this is to accommodate the huge number of traders we are relocating here,” he added.
The governor spoke on the rice mill, adding that the project when completed, would become the largest in Sub-Saharan Africa.
As he put it, the aim of the projects, which now produces 32 metric tonnes, is to boost food security in the state. The governor noted that the rice mill, which would be sited within Imota Light Industrial park, when completed would help boost rice availability in South West states.
