Traders Laud Oyo South Senator, Alli, Over Palliative

Market leaders in Oyo State have commended Sen. Sharafadeen Alli (APC-Oyo South) for reaching out to them with Sallah palliatives distributed to them to mitigate the prevailing economic hardship.

Among the markets visited in Ibadan yesterday were Bodija Market, Bodija Plank Market, Sango Market, Bode Market, Scout Camp Market, Ajebo-Old NITEL Market, and Gege Markets.

Speaking on behalf of others, Alhaji Sumaila Jimoh, the Babaloja of Bodija Market and Babaloja-General of Oyo State commended Alli for reaching out to them, stressing that he had always known the lawmaker to be a good man and a promise keeper before he became a senator, describing him a forthright politician.

“I know Alli to be a good man, promise keeper, and forthright politician. His electoral victory was divine and we pray he has a successful tenure of office,” he said.

Chief Olanrewaju Tewogbade, the Babaloja of Scout Camp Market, thanked God that they did not waste their votes, describing Alli as an exceptional politician. He said that Alli had started fulfilling his electioneering promises less than a month in office, saying he would continue to get their votes as a promise keeper.

Tewogbade expressed their appreciation to the lawmaker on behalf of all traders in the market, which he said was irrespective of tribes.

Earlier, Mr Gbenga Elegbede, who represented the Senator, said that the foodstuffs being distributed was a Sallah palliative from the lawmaker to the traders, noting that the gesture was in fulfillment of the lawmaker’s electioneering promise that he would continue to reach out to them regularly.

He assured that all other markets in Ibadan and Ibarapa  (within Oyo South Senatorial District) will get their own Sallah palliative (package) within the next few days.
