Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Tuesday approved full reopening of all markets in the state.
The approval was announced in a statement by the state commissioner for Local Government and Community Affairs, Dr. Wale Ahmed.
According to the statement, both food markets and non-food markets can reopen every day of the week.
Before now, food and non-food markets are only allowed to operate three days in a week- Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
The state government had regulated the opening of markets to check the spread of the COVID-19 in the state.
The statement read in part, “The Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has approved the full resumption of operations of both food markets and non-food markets.
“They are now to open daily.

“Mr Governor also advised the continued observance of all safety protocols.
“Traders and their customers must adhere strictly to the covid 19 protocols for their safety and the citizenry at large.”
