The trade union of men and women’s market traders in the country of Ogbomoso has passed a confidence vote on Governor Seyi Makinde’s government, approving him for a second term as governor of Oyo state.
The decision was made at a meeting of all traders at the town hall, Oja Igbo, in Ogbomoso over the weekend.
The approval, they say, is an appreciation for the state government’s corporate policies and infrastructure development, which support their professions.
It added that the approval was a sign of widespread support for his government’s initiatives to expand Oyo state and enhance the state’s reputation for good governance.
Present was the Commissioner for Information, Wasiu Olatunbosun, who replaced the acting governor of Oyo State, Barrister Bayo Lawal.

He thanked the traders in Ogbomoso for supporting the re-election of Governor Seyi Makinde.
He said ceding LAUTECH to Oyo State, including free education, free books, primary health centers in all local governments and primary health care, and Omituntun free health land every three months is part of the governor’s promises in 2019.
Olatubosun further mentioned many roads built in Oke Ogun, including Fapote to Iseyin, Under G Road, numerous roads in Ibadan, and the illuminated Oyo.
He went on to say that the governor takes care of retirees and has paid them tips, despite the difficult economic conditions the federal government had endured for the nation.
