Recall that some traders earlier staged protests in Computer Village kicking against the installation of Iyaloja and Babaloja.
According to the protesters, the market is an international space and not markets where edibles are sold but Tinubu-Ojo at a news conference on Wednesday described the protests as ill-informed.
She said that as the leader of all commodities traders, it was within her powers to appoint leaders for any market, including Computer Village.
At the installation ceremony, she urged the market leaders to see their installation as an opportunity to serve the traders.
