    Ogun CLO threatens to sue Gov Amosun over closure of Ota markets, shops

     By Emmanuel Udom

    Civil Liberties Organisation, Ogun state chapter, south-west Nigeria is threatening to sue Ibikunle Amosun, governor of the state, over the closure of Ota markets, shops.

    Comrade Yemi Enitan, chairman of Ogun CLO in a press statement yesterday said that business activities in Sango Ota were clamped down by the Ogun State government shortly after the yuletide.

    According to Enitan, thousands of traders at Sango garage and Ota as a whole who strife to make ends meet after the yuletide were deprived of their rights to do their respective businesses, which give them their daily bread, giving excuse of refuse littered in the area.

    This attitude is completely against the fundamental right of the traders and the residents of the area, insisting that CLO frowns at this undemocratic and autocratic attitude of the governor, he said.

    His words, we therefore warn Governor Ibikunle Amosun to rescind such behavior or he be taken up legally.

    Enitan further explained that there is no gain saying the fact that he has done a good thing by noticing how messy the area is and now taking measures on how to sanitise it even though the traders give flimsy excuses of the yuletide for such dirtiness, yet the sanitary officers and Ado Odo / Ota Local government are those to be held responsible for not performing their duties as expected.

    We are at this juncture advising Senator Ibikunle Amosun to apologize to all the stakeholders in the area and never to be autocratic in his decision in any aspect of governance in the state but rather follow the rule of law as we are not in the military regime and never were he a military man.
