Better Days Ahead for Rural Farmers, Traders – Aiyedatiwa Campaign Group

Rural dwellers in Akoko Southwest Local Government area of Ondo State have been assured that the newly allocated N2 billion soft loans to peasant farmers and petty traders will not be hijacked by privileged persons.

The council’s Director-General for Lucky Aiyedatiwa Campaign Organisation Foot Soldiers Independent Council (LACO-FSIC), Hon. David Ajobiewe, gave the assurance at various wards of Oka, Iwaro-Oka, Akungba and Oba-Akoko, among other communities respectively, in Akoko Southwest.

He said Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa had raised a well-guided micro-credit agency to ensure that the money reach those in dire need of government support, to boost their trade or farming, as the case as be.

“We are here to assure you, our fathers and mothers, that Governor Aiyedatiwa is determined to make sure that you all get your fair share of the disbursement of N2 billion loan grant he recently announced and his target are you people seated here.

“The Governor sees through your plight and he is determined that you should be empowered with soft loans to boost your businesses and farming, ” Ajobiewe assured.

“By engaging voters at their doorsteps, campaigns become easier, leading to increased voter turnout on election day. It is a highly effective strategy for building relationships with voters, mobilising support, and winning elections,” Ajobiewe appraised.
