Government has implored the people of the state to patronise scout-camp market to strengthen the local economy and increase the state’s Gross Domestic Products (GDP).

The Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism, Dr. Wasiu Olatubosun made this appeal in Ibadan, after a visit to the market today.

Olatubosun hinted that the government built and equipped the modern market for traders, to end street trading, adding that Scout Camp is Government-owned, supervised by the State Ministry of Trade and Investment.

“I use this occasion to reiterate the support of Oyo State Government to the success of this market and we will always be part of the numerous programmes that are geared towards bringing more developments to the State”, he said.

He also urged residents to pay adequate attention to consumption of fresh vegetables and fresh farm products from Oja-Agbe Market at the market.

Olatubosun therefore enjoined traders trading on the streets of Challenge, Felele/Olorunsogo areas to return to the Scout Camp market, as over Seven Hundred shops are still available for them to occupy.

“I urge the people to continue patronising the market to boost the capacities of the local farmers and enhance their livelihoods”, he said.

He said the market is a door of employment opportunities and source of wealth to many that are passionate about the commercial values in the State.
