Amidst the controversies that have trailed the September 3rd primary elections the All Progressives Congress (APC) Ondo state, the Association of Commodity Market Women and Men Nigeria (ACMWAMN) have come out to publicly drum support for one of the aspirants, Dr. Olusegun Abraham, stating that he is the only one who they believe can rescue the masses from the debilitating effects of pore governance in the state.
They have also added that the party must give a practical redress to settle the agitation against the allegations of fraud that have since rocked the election that produced Rotimi Akeredolu as winner.
Speaking yesterday at their secretariat in Akure, Mrs Olabisi Ojo Babatunde, the Iyaloja General said,
“We the market women and men of Ondo state are true progressives, and this move to align with the progressives started since the days of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeri (ACN), and this time around, we are united in the decision to throw our weight behind Olusegun Abraham to rescue this state from the poverty experienced by the masses”.
She added further, “As stakeholders in determining how the state functions or otherwise, we believe that this is our way of contributing to the achievement of a better governance in Ondo state”
“The state deserves a leader with integrity who understands how to make money and how to make money flow within the polity, we have met almost all the people aspiring to govern the state as from next year, and we have seen by his antecedence that Abraham is the most fit for the job, no doubt”.
According to her,the iyalojas and its executive members in the state are constituted to act as liaison officers between the APC and the teeming members of the ACMWAMN to ensure smooth working relationship that would translate into mutual benefit.
Thus, she further appealed to the party to resolve the petitions against the September 3rd primary election as soon as possible in order to pave way for a chance of a truly free and fair primary.
“We join many of the well meaning voices that have rejected that primary election that was unfortunately marred by fraud. It should not stand. Therefore, we appeal to the party headquarter and party leadership of the APC to resolve this electoral fraud issue quickly, in order to allow the people make a better choice in a truly free and fair primary which we are sure Abraham will emerged victorious.”
“In fact, the 18 of us, all the Iyalojas from all the 18 local governments in Ondo just made our stance known to our national leader, the Iyaloja-General of Nigeria, Alhaja Folasade Tinubu-Ojo, and we believe they stand by us to support a practical governor in Abraham, for our state.”, Mrs. Babatunde submitted.
The group is the umbrella body of the Association of Commodity Market Women and Men of Nigeria(ACMWAMN) under the Iyaloja-General of Nigeria, Alhaja Folasade Tinubu-Ojo.
