Edo Traders Seek Establishment Of International Market
Traders at the New Benin market in Benin City, the Edo state capital, are appealing to the state government to establish an international market, that will help to put a permanent end to the menace of street trading.

A trader, Mrs. Nosa Nosakhare said, “The shops in new Benin market cannot contain 25,000 people and they are very expensive but along the walk way you can do business with as little as 10,000 Naira but you need up to 300,000 Naira to rent a shop in the existing markets before you can set up a business.”

Another trader Mrs. Doris Ehigiamose also added that, “Its not that we like shading on the road but at least the governor should open a market for us to sell, but now it is like he wants us to leave the walk way but didn’t make another provision for us.”

The President of the Traders Welfare Union of Nigeria, Mr. Lucky Orukpe also said the government is being misinformed about the reason why people chose to trade on walk ways.

“Before you can rent a shop in any of the markets here in Benin city you must meet three conditions which will cost you over 300,000 Naira”

The traders were also at the Government House to register their complains, although no government official was available to receive them.
