The Iyaloja-General of Nigeria and daughter of national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Bola Tinubu, Chief Folasade Tinubu-Ojo, on Thursday, expressed displeasure of market women to the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, lamenting that they have been neglected by the government.

Chief Tinubu-Ojo, who led scores of women to All Progressives Congress (APC) national secretariat in Abuja, on Thursday, said the market women of Nigeria believed that the government of the day was not carrying them along, despite their contribution to the election of the president.

According to her, the market women worked round the clock for the party during the electioneering, noting that after the party came to power, they had been abandoned.

Speaking with newsmen, she said “I am here this afternoon to represent market women and men of Nigeria. There has been agitations, not even agitation or allegation, the people believed that the government of the day is not carrying them along as it should be, that they worked round the clock for the party during the electioneering, but after the inauguration, most of us are not carried along.”

She said “because I am the daughter of the national leader of APC doesn’t mean that I must not represent my people well, I have to represent my people’s opinion.

“I am a leader and as such, my people are crying foul and I won’t fold my hands and keep quiet. I am not mobilising against the party, no, I am solidly behind it. I have worked for the party before and I will still work for the party tomorrow, but that does not stop me from saying the truth.” (Tribune)
