Peter Obi, Jimi Agbaje assure Lagos traders of good deal
Sanwo-Olu raises butchers’ hope Maku promises to end insecurity, non-payment of gratuity, pension
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) vice presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi and Lagos State governorship flag-bearer, Mr. Jimi Agbaje, have expressed misgivings over President Muhammadu Buhari’s failure to sign into law the new Electoral Bill passed by the National Assembly.
The duo, while speaking during a door-to-door campaign and town hall meetings with business operators at the Computer Village in Ikeja, Games Village in Surulere, Ladipo Auto Spare Parts Market in Ladipo and FESTAC Town yesterday, promised the traders a robust economy should their party come into power both at the centre and in the state come February 16 and March 2, 2019 respectively.
Also, at a campaign, Lagos State governorship candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu, assured butchers in the state, under the aegis of Lagos State Butchers Association, that his government would improve their businesses if voted into power.
Sanwo-Olu and his running mate, Obafemi Hamzat, gave the assurance when the butchers paid a courtesy visit to their campaign office in Ikoyi.
In a related vein, the Nasarawa State governorship candidate on the platform of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Labaran Maku, said he would face out insecurity one hundred days after his swearing in. Maku, who made the promise while unveiling his blueprints at a North-Central campaign flag-off of APGA at the Lafia Square yesterday, assured the people that during his era, percentage payment, non-payment of gratuity and pension to retirees would be a thing of the past.
However, National Chairman of the party, Dr. Victor Oye, urged the people of the state to vote Maku so as to regain freedom from the bondage of poverty, injustice and marginalisation.
