He assured the auto parts dealers/sellers and other traders in the market of better days ahead just as he advised them to be patient with him, saying that work would soon begin on the market road.
According to the governor, government would first of all start with putting concrete on the road in the market and thereafter begin renovation of all the shops for the comfort of the traders.

He particularly thanked the people for their unalloyed support, especially in the recently concluded general elections in the state, promising them that government would not neglect them, but ensure that they benefit from the dividends of good governance in the state.
Speaking on behalf of the traders, the Babaloja of Mojere Market, Kayode Oluwafemi, lauded the governor for his good works across the state. He appreciated the governor for coming to the aid of the traders, saying the development would ease their suffering.
