An estate development company, the All-Purpose Shelters, have partnered with farmers and bulk purchase traders across Nigeria to reduce the high cost of farm produce, food stuff such as – yam, rice, tomatoes, garri, fish, chicken and second hand clothes with shoes popularly known as (Okirika).

The management of the company, which is the developer of Wuye Ultra-Modern BOT Market, Wuye, Abuja is working in partnership with the leadership of the ultra-modern market.

While speaking, the facility manager, Mr Olodu Kenonye, said that the leadership of the facility, due to continuous increase in population in Abuja, which is the federal capital territory, coupled with the negative impact of insurgency in the northern part of the country, has decided to open-up the market for direct farmers/buyers’ Special Monday market.
