The Ounjè Èkò discount markets will reopen to Lagosians on Sunday, March 24, 2024. Residents are hailing the administration of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu for bringing the initiative to all the five divisions of the State.

Governor Sanwo-Olu rolled out the initiative, amongst others, to impact lives in various sectors of the economy, such as transportation, MSME trade, food, education, and health.  They will all be run under the theme, EKO CARES.

The Ounjè Èko market pilot scheme began on Sunday, March 17 with sales of discounted food items, such as rice, beans, garri, bread, eggs, and perishables – tomato, pepper, rodo and onions.

Local food vendors have witnessed increased sales since the exercise started, just as residents in each locality are excited at the low prices.

The activities in each market are coordinated by LASG officials, youth volunteers, private sector payment solution providers, and local government officials to ensure seamless operations. 

Residents are advised to look out for prices of the items displayed in each locality as they might slightly differ in different locations.

A new market location has also been introduced in Lekki Phase 1 to cater to the needs of residents within the area.

The detailed locations of Ounje Èkó markets can be found on all Lagos State Government social media platforms – Facebook, Instagram, X, and www.lagosstate.gov.ng.
