Findings have revealed why and how the Popular Canopy Technology Market, Wuse Zone 3 behind Intercontinental Plaza.
According to one of the occupants of the demolished market (who pleaded anonymity).
The market has about 5,000 shops.
They pay 70,000 Naira rent to owners of the shops, while AMAC collects 5,000 Naira per shop. The shops measure about 2metres by 2metres. 5,000 shops * 5,000Naira generates a whooping 25, 000, 000 Naira for AMAC yearly.
The market provides jobs for over 10,000 Nigerians in the areas of ICT hardware and software, office consumables and furniture, electrical and electronics sales n repairs, food, clothes, etc.
He stated that reasons for the demolition may not be unconnected with the disunity amongst occupants of the market and their union, and that a land behind the market was sold recently to someone highly placed so maybe the person wanted them out.
AMAC on their part has complained that some of auch markets where not supposed to exist in the first place, as they as situated in spaces alloted or designated to be gardens and parks.
My opinion however is as follows: With the current economic recession, joblessness, increase in crime rate, hunger, poverty and starvation arife in Nigeria...should we focus on further impoverishing ourselves? Destroying people means of livelihood, properties destroyed are worth billions, hopes and dreams shattered, school fees of young Nigerians and utility bills are paid from tjis market.
Is there no other way for our government to sanitise our "Parks" and "Gardens" rather than demolish and destroy without compensation and/or provision of alternatives? While at the same time losing the revenue that is being generated from the fees, levies and taxes paid in these small markets? Lets comment objectively.

Hahaha please somebody help me with that picture... Nairalanders and booking land for fp...
Even a street light that was obviously installed with taxpayers money seem to have been destroyed alongside the demolition...
The trees and shribs in the market are even intact... despite the occupants being there for their business...
Lets see what they will do with this place...
If u will not see one oga at the top erecting a shopping complex there with our stolen wealth in the nearest future to fleece occupants or u will see the place deserted or even turned to a refuse dump...
Please lets comment and voice our opinions...
I hope Lala will do the needful...
