The Peoples Democratic Party governorship candidate in Lagos State, Olajide Adediran, popularly known as Jandor, has promised to ensure that traders in markets in the state are no longer extorted by their leaders called Mama Loja.

Jandor, in a statement on Wednesday, said if elected, his administration will provide an enabling environment for business to thrive.

He said his promises are not something unachievable just as he promised to unveil more of his plans for Lagosians.

The statement read in part, “We will be deliberate about ease of doing business in Lagos by providing enabling environment to players in our economy both at the formal and informal sectors.

“We will restore hope of our market men and women to make sure no one harasses or extort them in the name of “Mama loja” (Market Leader) and we won’t take away their means of livelihood for a day, by closing any market in Lagos under whatever guise.

“We know that you, the good people of Lagos are just enduring the remaining days of the incumbent government. We are signing a social contract with you to serve you with the skillfulness of our hands and the integrity of our hearts.

“We will reach out to every Lagosian, and walk through each of the 245 political wards and 13,325 polling units across the 20 Local Government areas of the state to seek your vote and your support for Funke and I on March 11, 2023, date for the governorship election and all other candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party for the legislative offices.

“We will continue to communicate our plans to you in the coming days as we solicit your feedback from time to time on this project of our mutual interest.

“I am not here to make promises that are not achievable but with your mandate, our vision is to transform Lagos into a functional, prosperous and secure state that will deliver the promise of making Lagos work for all.”
