Tinubu Sympathizes With Petty Traders Worse Hit By Cashless Policy

Presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has expressed sympathy for petty traders and those dealing in perishable goods that are worst affected by the current Federal Government cashless policy.
Tinubu, who spoke today, February 17 at a town hall meeting with market leaders from around the country in Abuja, said confessed that he was fed and trained by his late mother with money from trading and that he could identify with the pains and gains of traders.
He cited the example of a carrot seller he observed while on a recent campaign trip to Gombe, who was standing under the sun tending to his wares with no one to patronize him “because there was no currency.”
The APC presidential candidate called on the traders to remain resolute and not allow difficulties arising from the naira swap exercise to overwhelm them.
He promised that if elected, his government would provide low interest loans for traders and address their concerns in other areas of their businesses.
He stressed that he knows where the shoe is pinching them, saying: “this man is from the market and is from the city.”
Representatives of market leaders who addressed the participants spoke glowingly of the APC candidate who they described as one of them.
They promised to mobilize for the victory of Tinubu who, they said, is the best candidate on the ballot.
Tinubu was joined at the event by Governors Muhammad Badaru Abubakar (Jigawa) and Abubakar Sani Bello (Niger), Secretary of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Hon. James Faleke, among other chieftains of the party
