Ibadan Market Fire Victims Get N10m From Ajimobi

abiola ajimobiGovernor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State has disbursed N10 million to traders of Aleshinloye Market, Ibadan, whose shops were gutted by fire recently.

The governor, while presenting the cheques to the traders at the weekend, said that the gesture was in fulfilment of his earlier promise to assist the affected traders to cushion the effect of the losses they suffered as a result of the fire disaster.

He commended the traders for their immense contributions to the socio-economic development of the state, adding that his administration would not relent in its efforts at ensuring improved living conditions of the people of the state.

The special adviser to the governor on media, Dr Festus Adedayo, in a statement in Ibadan, the state capital on Sunday, said the Ajimobi administration had earmarked N300 million as interest-free loans to assist traders in the state, while markets had been provided for the traders who were removed from the streets.

Ajimobi urged the traders to continue to support the urban renewal programme of his administration and to continue to sustain the existing peace in the state.
