Governor of Lagos State, Babatunde Raji Fashola has commissioned the new Oyingbo Market 24 years after it was demolished for reconstruction.
Governor Fashola congratulated the original occupants of the old Oyingbo Market that are still alive to witness the ceremony, without giving up hope on the reconstruction dreams.
Fashola recalled that the new market was part of his campaign promises to Lagosians in 2007.
According to him,
I held my promise in high esteem. And I am here to hand over the market in fulfillment of my promise. Our democracy will make progress so long as you vote for parties that will make promise to you and keep to them.
He concluded by saying;
This new Oyingbo market is one of my promises and it is here today and more modern than what used to be here before. I was not too young to know the old Oyingbo market because my mother used to sell aluminum pans somewhere around here.
