The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun Central senatorial district, Olumide Aderinokun, said Nigerians have suffered enough hardship under the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Aderinokun, however, expressed solace in that the 2023 general election is yet another opportunity for Nigerians to set themselves free from the hardship allegedly imposed on them by the APC government.
The senatorial candidate said this in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, during an interactive session with the leadership of plank sellers and butchers’ associations in Ogun Central.
The Owu chief, who pledged to ease the economic hardship in Ogun Central when elected, attested to the daily struggles of artisans, promising to bring relief through empowerment programmes as a lawmaker.
“I understand the hardship you go through to meet demands in the market not to even talk of diminishing returns after doing business,” Chief Aderinokun said.
“We have suffered enough in Nigeria under the APC, let’s wake up to rescue the future of our children.
“One of the legacies we can leave for them is through the decision we make with our individual votes in 2023.
“I am ready to deliver because I have endured this hardship with you and we must rise up to take charge.”
