According to report reaching oyogist.com, the 2019 Governorship Candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Chief Adebayo Adelabu has donated N1.4million as initial palliatives to the victims of the Shasha Market crisis and promised building materials to support the reconstruction of the market.

It will be recalled that the market was destroyed during communal clash between the indigenes and the Hausa community recently.

Chief Adelabu stated this during his visit to the Baale Shasha Chief Akinade Ajani, Sherik Shasha Alhaji Haruna MAI -Yasin Kastina and other leaders in the market.

According to Femi Awogboro, one of his media aides, Chief Bayo Adelabu, was at the popular Shasha Market in Akinyele Local Government to commiserate with the community and stakeholders at the market and to deliver the message of Asiwaju Tinubu of his planned visits to Shasha and Agodi Spare Parts markets.

“I am a thoroughbred Ibadan indigene who knows the importance and economic value of this market, hence the need for this visit and I pledge both financial and moral support towards reconstruction of the market. I have also formally notified the National Leader of All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu about Shasha and Agodi Spare Parts markets, he has promised to visit the two markets personally along with me and I am confidently sure that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu will give generous donation towards their reconstruction”, Adelabu said.

Chief Adelabu charged the Oyo State Government, led by Governor Seyi Makinde to give deserved attention to these markets because of their economic and commercial value for the overall development of the state.

However, he pointed that his visit is purely non-political but to support economic development of the state and peaceful co-existence in the state as an indigene and stakeholder.

The former Deputy Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria also urged respective leaders in the market and Shasha community at large to embrace dialogue and shun any act that can truncate the peaceful co-existence between Yorubas and Hausas in the Area.

“There’s need to shun violence and embrace peace because it’s only an atmosphere of peace that any meaningful development can thrive”, Adelabu added.
