It was discovered that merchants may not be permitted to open until they receive their voter identification cards.

The headquarters of Ojo Local Government on Olojo Drive were besieged by a massive mob of voters for the most of yesterday.

Titus Ogochukwu, a trader who spoke with our correspondent when he visited the location, stated that the traders did not mind closing their stalls in order to register for PVCs.

He stated, “The industry leaders informed us that we must purchase PVC. We all agreed to reserve a day for the exercise after debating the matter. During the meeting, we decided that it would be best to have the event on a Thursday, the day of the weekly environmental sanitation exercise in the market.

“We obliged, although we regret the inconvenience it caused our consumers, who came from both within and outside the state. Customers from outside the state have booked the majority of Ojo’s hotels to capacity. They are waiting for us to open the market for business on Friday.”

Another trader, James Oladimeji, stated, “We’ve realised that our votes count, so we’d like to work together to alter the system. We require the most qualified candidate, regardless of Igbo, Yoruba, or Hausa.”
