Market women cry foul -TINUBU

Chief Folasade Tinubu-Ojo

The market women body of Nigeria led by the head of the market women popularly known as the Iyaloja General, Chief Folasade Tinubu-Ojo, daughter of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, led a group of women to the APC National Secretariat in Abuja on Thursday, to protest the short-changing of market women by the present APC government.

The women claim as part of the reason for their protest being that, the Buhari government has side-lined women party members who fought, supported ad voted for the present government.

The market women were particularly angry that the First Lady is said to have floated a parallel women association in Abuja market. A move, which the women protested, is targeted to undermine the existing body and furthermore widen the gap between the erstwhile party supporters and the present government.

The women called on President Muhammadu Buhari to look into the plight of women because they voted for his government.
