The campaign has been taken to major markets in Osogbo, Olorunda, Irepodun and Orolu Federal Constituency where Mrs. Aregbesola assured the traders that Oyetola would run an inclusive administration that would ensure equity and fair play, and would give women appointment, if elected.
The governor’s wife urged the market men and women to vote for APC and avail themselves of the opportunity to continue to enjoy the outgoing Governor Rauf Aregbesola’s legacies.
She expressed worry that the foundation laid by Governor Aregbesola’s administration would be destroyed if any of the opposition parties is allowed to take over power from the ruling APC.
A member of the House of Representatives, representing Ayedade/Ayedire/Isokan Federal Constituency, Ayo Omidiran, appealed to the market women who were yet to collect their Permanent Voter’s Card (PVCs) to urgently do so to qualify to vote.
She commended the traders for the roles they played in ensuring the re-election of Aregbesola in 2014, urging them to go out enmasse and do the same for Oyetola on September 22.
Omidiran, who also recalled the support of the APC-led Federal Government for the market women, stated that the ongoing distribution of N10,000 to 30,000 through Trader Moni programme to petty traders in the state was a promise kept by President Muhammadu Buhari.
She reminded them that Governor Aregbesola had abundantly supported market women through promotion of small scale businesses and entrepreneurs.
Omidiran told the women that time had come for them to reciprocate the governments gestures by voting for APC to be able to access more dividends of democracy.
