He promised to look into all the issues with a view to proffering lasting solutions to them.

Lebi said that market women had come of age in terms of decision making and conduct in the market place.

He assured them that all their complaints and requests would be addressed as soon as possible.

Speaking earlier, Chief Iwalola Adefemiwa, the Iyaloja General of Ondo State, commended the Special Adviser for giving them an audience in spite of a short notice.

Adefemiwa, who led other sectional market leaders to the meeting, said the meeting was imperative in order to intimate the state government with some challenges being faced in various markets in the state, particularly in the Ondo Kingdom.

The Iyaloja listed some markets that needed government urgent intervention to include Surulere, Agbogbo-Oke, Lipakala and Moferere, all in Ondo town.

She thanked the Oluwarotimi Akeredolu-led administration for its support borne out of love for the entire market women in the state.
