Osun State Government, in collaboration with the World Bank, has commenced the rebuilding of the Atakumosa Central Market in Adeti, Ilesha.

The market, which had about 4,000 shops was recently razed down by fire, with properties worth billions of naira destroyed.

However, the source of the fire outbreak was not known but it was suspected to have been caused by an electric upsurge.

The State Governor, Alh Gboyega Oyetola who addressed the traders at the event, said that rebuilding of the market would cost more than 200 million naira.

He noted that 250 stalls would be added, even as the project is targeted to be completed this year.

He explained that the plan to rebuild the market was part of his campaign promises in delivering good governance to the people of the state.
