Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in Osun, Senator Ademola Adeleke has promised traders and artisans of new lease of life if elected as the governor of the state.
He made this assurance on Monday while hosting some members of Ajegunle Auto Spare Part Market Osogbo who visited him in Ede.
He said: “I will support artisans, drivers, traders and all categories of trade operators. Our government will introduce supportive programmes to ensure access to soft loans. I will stop punitive taxes.”
“My government will serve the poor, the vulcanisers, bricklayers, mechanics and all artisans. My government will be your government. This current economic darkness will disappear under the light of our government.”
Lamenting what he described as the ongoing economic depression among Osun indegenes, the gubernatorial hopeful told the traders that “my government will be a compassionate one where workers will be paid regularly, where pensioners will have their dues, where inflation of contracts for self-enrichment will be a thing of the past.
“I have a validated blueprint to deliver on good governance in Osun state”, he stressed
Speaking on behalf of others, one of the traders, Alhaji Ganiyu Wakil declared that they were already mobilizing support for Adeleke in the market, declaring their support for him.
Wakil, also an indigene of Ede said: “We are here to endorse you (Adeleke). We are here to pledge our support for you. We know you have good antecedent and records. You know the challenges facing artisans and traders in Osun. We know you are the right man for the job.”
