Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, governorship candidate in Oyo state, Seyi Makinde on Monday promised to install street lights, tar all roads within the foodstuff market, Bodija, Ibadan and provide loan scheme for traders to improve the economy of the state.
Makinde stated this while addressing a mammoth crowd at Bodija market during the party’s governorship campaign of Ibadan North Local Government held at Bodija market, on Monday.
With Makinde on the campaign team include; deputy governorship candidate, Raufu Olaniyan, PDP chairman in the state, Alhaji Kunmi Mustapha, former deputy chief whip of the Senate, Senator Hosea Ayoola Agboola, Oyo south senatorial candidate, Dr Kola Balogun, Honourable Tayo Sarumi, Alhaja Bose Adedibu, House of Representatives candidate, Ibadan North Federal constituency, Demola Omotoso, Chief Jacob Adetoro, Prince Dotun Oyelade among others.
He said “on the stalls destroyed, we assure you that we will rebuild it if voted into power. We will also assist the business community to install street lights in the market. As you can see, by the time we came here its already dawn and we can’t even see ourselves clearly and at the cover of darkness, it’s becoming easier to perpetrate crime.
“We will definitely help them fix the roads, install lights and we do hope that we will enhance the credit scheme for the market men and women. Our own empowerment is not free money, so we ensure that we can give them revolving credit facility that can make them do more and also make more profit revolving within the market.”
Earlier, Makinde had met with representatives of the Nigerian Union of Tailors (NUT), Oyo State, at the tailors’ house, Odinjo, Ibadan, and Adeoyo, Ibadan.
