Sokoto APC Gov’ship Candidate Promises To Actualise Illela Int’l Border Market


November 30, (THEWILL) – The All Progressive Congress (APC) governorship candidate in Sokoto State, Hon. Ahmed Aliyu, has promised to actualise the long-awaited construction of an international market in Illela Local Government Area of the state.

Ahmed stated this while addressing a crowd of APC supporters, who turned out to welcome him while attending a wedding ceremony in the area.

He said the current PDP administration in the State has failed to redeem its campaign promise of setting up the international market in the area.

According to him, since the pronouncement was made by the current administration seven years ago, nothing has been done about the market issue.

He wondered why any serious government would fail such a promise, which has a lot of economic benefits not only to Sokoto state but to Nigeria and Niger Republic.

He said Illela as a border community has a lot of commercial activities that need to be supported by any serious government.

Ahmed assured people in the area that if voted come 2023, his administration will execute the project.

This he said became imperative considering the need to beef up internally generated revenue for the State.

“I’m very much sure that the establishment of this international market will also create a lot of job opportunities for people in this area” he added

He further expressed optimism that when established, the international market will boost the state’s revenue drive and also improve the long-existing economic and social ties between border communities of the two countries.

Earlier, the Chairman of APC, Illela Local Government, Muhammad Sarkin Alaru, expressed optimism that APC will deliver Illela in the upcoming polls.

He, therefore, appealed to party supporters to redouble efforts to ensure the party’s victory.
