Hardship: Osemawe moves to reduce prices of goods

By Sade Adewale, Ondo

The Osemawe of Ondo Oba Victor Kiladejo has ordered the prohibition of imposition of association membership on any trader .

Oba Kiladejo gave the order, through the Osemawe-in-Council, as part of  efforts to reduce the prices of food, commodities and services.

The order was part of the resolutions adopted by Osemawe-in-Council at a stakeholders and youth meeting held at the Palace Hall, Ondo City.

The resolutions were contained in a statement from the Ondo Ekinmogun Youth Congress on Saturday, issued by Kayode Igbekoyi on behalf of the President of the group, Comrade Kayode Folajogun.

According to the statement, the resolutions read that “imposition of association membership of any kind on traders is prohibited in Ondo city. Ondo markets are declared free and open for every  trader  from other communities, towns or states can trade freely in Ondo kingdom.

It read further that “all moribund and abandoned community markets e.g Odosida, Okelisa, Ayeyemi, Akinjagunla, Igba, Oka, and Odojomu including neighbourhood markets should be revamped, steps being taken to create more alternative markets like Shasha, Kara ( in Ondo) should be expedited.”

In the resolutions, the council asked any seller or trader who felt threatened while selling her goods in Ondo to call the concerned authorities, Iyaloja or youth president and also that Iyaloja should make necessary publicity concerning the resolutions of market women on Osemawe’s directive.

Due to the removal of fuel subsidies and the depreciation of the naira, there has been a consistent increase in food prices nationwide in recent times.
