Share This

Kano state government has warned traders at the ‘Yan lemo’ market in the state capital, to improve on the sanitary condition of the market, or risk having it relocated to another place.

The State Commissioner for Environment, who is also the Chairman of the State Task Force Committee on Sanitation, Alhaji Abdullahi Abbas, gave the warning in Kano on Saturday.

Speaking through the Director, Administration and General Services of the Ministry of Environment, Alhaji Abdullahi Kankarofi, the commissioner said despite several warnings, the traders failed to improve the sanitary condition of the market.

He lamented that the traders were in the habit of littering the environment with rotten fruits that contaminated the atmosphere with foul smell, thereby discomforting nearby residents and road users.

Abbas said an earlier ultimatum given to the traders would be extend and if there was no improvement, legal action would be taken and the market relocated to the outskirt of the city. (NAN)
