In Nigeria, while many women are involved with market activities like buying and selling, we also see other entrepreneurs like Linda Ikeji, who has been able to rise from blogging into becoming a house hold name in women empowerment with her programs that support female businesses across Nigeria, and as much as people may say, some moves are mainly for hype and news, we should be honest to ourselves that there are constant testimonials of people who have been positively affected by her moves, and we can imagine how many families can feed because of such moves, so honestly we need to change our thinking process. While we hope that more people will involved with businesses and entrepreneurship, there is also room for protection of lives and properties as the cases of fire outbursts have been increasing on a daily basis.
We have had cases of Ladipo market, markets in the East and other parts destroyed by fire. The most recent reported this morning is Apongbon under bridge market , which is a home to provisions , wines and and other basic amenities. The reason for the fire is still unknown , but it is sad because the means of livelihood of many homes , has been destroyed. While people have been advised to use alternative routes, the InlandTown crew will give updates as they unfold.
