The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate for Lagos, Abdul- Azeez Adediran, has condemned plans by the state government to shut down all major markets in the state, so as to allow traders to participate in the presidential campaign rally for the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, and his running mate Kasim Shettima
Adeniran argued that the move, shutting done markets, by the ruling party was a ploy to force the traders to attend their planned campaign rally in the state.
The PDP candidate, in a statement released by Head, Media & Communications JANDOR4Governor Campaign Organization, Gbenga Ogunleye, described the said action of the state government as insensitive, callous, barbaric, and criminal.
He stated that the traders are free citizens of the country whose right to do business is protected by the law of the nation. And that any act to intimidate or threaten them to attend a programme against their wish is criminal and inhuman.
The Governorship hopeful warned the state government to desist from unleashing further pains on the people of the state who are barely surviving the harsh economic condition of the country which the bad governance of the APC at the federal and state levels has plucked the nation into.
He, therefore, advised the state government to rescind from going ahead with the wicked plan of denying the helpless traders their daily bread for tomorrow’s APC rally.
Adeniran also enjoined the traders and market association leaders to stand their ground by refusing to be bamboozled by the outgoing clueless government into attending the show of shame planned for tomorrow.
He appealed to all the good people of the state to keep hope alive as they endure the remaining days of the inept APC-led administration.
The opposition party’s candidate assured them that their vote for the PDP in the 2023 general elections will birth the much-desired breath of fresh air in the governance of the state.
