The state Commissioner for Information, Ibrahim Magaji Dosara disclosed this in a press release, adding that the reopening of the markets was a result of an improvement in the security situation and a series of requests by members of the public.

The Commissioner said: “Following reports of some sanity in some parts of the state, and the series of requests by members of the public for the reopening of some weekly markets, the state government has considered and approved the reopening of some weekly markets, beginning from Monday, November 1, 2021.”
