Full operations are expected as soon as construction works at the site of Karmo District Market, located near Idu, which are currently at about 85 per cent.
Sa’adatu Aliyu, managing director of Rural Homes Ltd., a subsidiary of the Homes Group, developers of the project, who made the revelation in Abuja, said construction was ongoing.
She said, “We have so far modernised it through zoning, adequate spacing and provision of some special amenities to aid shopping, especially for mothers and working-class women and men. Examples of such amenities are space for a creche, a dedicated Bukka area, a separate section for tailors, gold sellers, etc.
“There is a farmer’s market, which is a section by itself for fresh food and vegetables strictly. It has over 150 stalls and over 100 enclosed units.’’
