We Are In Total Support Of Your Candidature, We Are For PDP, Osun Market Women Assure Adeleke



The candidature of Senator Ademola Adeleke of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Osun state, received more support on Tuesday as market groups in Ijesaland assured him of their votes during the September 22 governorship election in the state.


The market groups who received Senator Adeleke at their various meeting points in Ilesa prayed for his victory at the poll.


Speaking for the market women, Chief (Mrs)Eniola Ogundare, the Yeyerisa of Ijesaland while praying for Adeleke said, "You will get there by God's grace. We are with PDP, all markets in Ijesa are with you."


The Yeyerisa of Ilesa who was accompanied to the meeting by the Iyaloja of Atakumosa, Chief (Mrs) Olabisi Awe, Babaloja, Babatunde Abiola and other top leaders in Ijesa markets, lamented the alleged suffering imposed on market people under the All Progressives Congress government.


Seh said,  "Our people have learnt their lesson and have settled for the  PDP because APC has only brought hardship on the people," she said.


Mrs Ogundare narrated how Governor Rauf Aregbesola allegedly turned down several appeal for intervention on the burnt Atakumosa market, adding that the APC government rejected entreaties to approve a letter for market people to access fund from a commercial bank.


"On Atakunmosa market, we need your help. Aregbesola has failed us. Despite the avalanche of promises he made to us on the market, he didn't fulfil any of it", she narrates.


She, however, appealed to Senator Adeleke to avert the repeat of Ekiti governorship election scenario by guiding against rigging, assuring him of their votes on September 22.


The mood was similar at the Ibara market, where Ijesa fairly used spare part dealers' association, declared their supports for Senator Adeleke.


The association's chairman, Iyiola Alonge with hundreds of his members thronged the hall to receieve and endorse the PDP candidate


As the candidate's convoy entered the market, a jubilant crowd  sang varying somgs to express their endorsement of Adeleke's ambition.


The chairman of the spare part dealers, Mr.  Alonge, expressed their readiness to support Senator Adeleke for the governorshipseat in the state, expressing optimism that voting PDP in September 22 would bring a new lease of life to Osun citizens.


He lamented the painful experience members bear due to the economic distress APC government allegedly created in the state, noting that their resolve to enthrone a PDP government for a safer tomorrow is unshakeable.


Pointing out why the association is backing PDP in the forthcoming governorship election, Alonge said "When it was Aregbesola's turn, we backed him and now, it is Adeleke's turn and we won't waver."


Responding to the outpour of supports, Senator Adeleke expressed his appreciation for the endorsements and assured them that he wouldn't disappoint.


Adeleke said the issues highlighted by the market groups will be addressed if elected as governor, assuring them that his government will discontinue capital flight by  embracing local content and local product and service providers.


He asked the people to keep faith in him saying "I don't promise and fail. I will give priority to pension arrears and salaries, restructure education of the state for effectiveness, provide jobs for the youths."


The PDP flagbearer promised to boost Osun state internally generated revenue (IGR) without burdening the people, saying he will use his national and international connections to draw investors and create opportunities for the people of the state.
