The President General of Alaba International Amalgamated Council of Sectional Heads, Chief Camilus  Amajuoyi,  has said that frivolous court cases would not deter him from doing the good job he has in mind for the biggest electronics and electrical market in West Africa.

Chief Amajuoyi who is also the President of International Market Association Electronics (IMAE), Ojo, Alaba, said that what he had found out in life and in leadership is that some people don’t like development, let alone progress.

He said the progress that his administration was making in the transformation of the market had come to stay, adding that no court would derail his focused and determined leadership.

According to him, electronics section which is his own primary constituency is now wearing a very new look, and from there, the entire Alaba is being transformed both mentally and architecturally.

He said before he was elected, touts were having a free reign, terrorising both traders and customers, but now sanity had been restored in the market.

Speaking further, he said that with the giant strides he and his executive have made within one and half year of coming into office, it was worrisome that some people would want to take them to court.

His words: “The slogan of my campaign when I was running for the office of the President of International Market Association Electronics, Ojo, Alaba was the ‘New Face of Alaba’ because I was determined to give the international market a face lift and to the glory of God, we achieved that just few months of our coming into office. If you come to our secretariat today, you will see that we have restored the glory of Alaba as an international market.

“Before now, touts were the lords in the market, harassing and intimidating both the traders and the customers to the extent that we were losing customers in droves because they were afraid of coming to the market. We, in conjunction with Ojo local government and security agencies fought and drove the touts away.

“Today, nobody is being harassed or intimidated in the market. Where we used to have floods in the market, I have provided interlocking tiles. I have dug boreholes to make water available for all. I have widened the main access road to the market, just to mention a few. It was, therefore, worrisome when I was informed that the association was sued to court.

“My only conclusion is that the elements that took us to court have only one intention: to take back the hand of the clock.”
