Abstract:The traditional market system is supported by two parallel administrative sub-systems: the traditional, centred on the Oba (Chief), and the modern, exemplified by the local government councils. Since these systems originate from different backgrounds and are characterized by different economic values, and since both operate within the same spatial (marketing) system, it is conceivable that: 1) The two sub-systems could exert a neutralizing influence on the market system end thereby undermine its efficiency. where opposing characteristics of the two sub-systems are in operation; or 2) the two sub-systems could reinforce each other and thereby enhance the efficiency of the market system. where complimentary processes are in activation. This paper examines the changing administrative processes in the traditional markets in Lagos in the light of the above two hypotheses. Notes, table, figures, appendix.
