The study employed secondary and primary sources of data. A total number of 274 questionnaires were administered using random sampling technique to collect information for the study. The data were analysed with the aid of descriptive, correlation and regression techniques. The findings revealed that, educational status of the public have a great influence on the income level of the public which determine their perception on the relocation of the market. The income level has the potential to be explained by the educational status of the public. Besides, new market lacks some basic infrastructural facilities such as electricity, portable water and standard parking spaces.
