Obasanjo visits market, urges traders to vote on Saturday

The hustle is real! Former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, has urged Nigerians to go out in large numbers on Saturday and vote in the governorship and state House of Assembly elections as they did in the presidential and National Assembly elections on March 28.

He said this on Saturday during a surprise visit to Itoku Market in Abeokuta South Local Government Area of Ogun State, while interacting with the traders in the market.

The former president caused a stir within the market as the traders began to chant Sai Baba Obasanjo, Sai Amosun.
But Obasanjo refused to name the party he would want the traders to vote for when journalists caught up with him in the market.

In his response to what advice he would give to the traders ahead of the April 11 election, Obasanjo said, “They should do exactly what they did last Saturday.”
He said he had come to felicitate with the traders in the spirit of the Easter season.

Obasanjo, who spoke in Yoruba said, “Since I came back from Abuja, I have not come here to say hello to you. This is my community. As a member of the community, I want to know what’s going on and what’s happening in the community.”
