Traders appeal to Lagos for cold roomLAGOS – The General Secretary, Oba Ogunji Market Traders Association, Agege, Lagos, Mr Lamidi Lukmon, Wednesday urged the Lagos State Government to cold rooms at the market for the preservation of perishable food items.

Lukmon told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that a government cold room at the market would help to check the rising cost of storing perishable foods items.

According to him, the privately-owned cold rooms in the market are not enough and the cost of storing items in them are becoming expensive for traders.

He also said that the market needed to be upgraded and that a cold room one of the items that would make meaningful impact.

“Oba Ogunji Market is over 65 years old; we appeal to the government to come to our rescue and help to achieve our desire,” Lukmon said.

He lauded the World Bank-assisted FADAMA III Project, which built 42 shops in the market, which were inaugurated on Dec. 14, 2013.

“We are enjoying that facility and we hope more will come the state government,” he said. (NAN)
