A President Muhammadu Buhari support group under the aegis of Nigerian Traders for PMB, has commenced free medical outreach for traders in all the major markets nationwide, beginning from the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
The group is also sensitising the traders on the importance of peaceful participation in the forthcoming general elections.
Speaking with newsmen during the programme at Kuje Area council, yesterday, national coordinator of the group, Prince Paul Ikonne, said there is plan to reach 1000 traders in each of the major markets nationwide “but in the FCT, we will visit all the major markets across the six area councils.”
Prince Ikonne, who contested the recent governorship primary in Abia State, added that the group is a coalition of traders coming together to form what is known as Nigerian Traders for PMB.
He said that the group has a team of Opticians, Doctors and other medical professionals to attend to the medical needs of the traders. It is also to sensitize them on the forthcoming general elections.
“The essence of this is to sensitise the traders on their right to vote and to vote right when it comes to election in 2019; for them not to sell their vote, to hold their PVC close to them and to vote the government that has given attention to them, the government that has programme for the country, fighting corruption, providing infrastructure, securing the lives and property of the citizens and providing dividends of democracy.
“The medical outreach is meant to bring medical services directly to the traders. If you notice from time to time the traders leave their houses early and leave their shops late; many of them don’t have time to go to the hospital for check-up, and that is why we have a team of doctors here. We are not doing it as a town hall meeting. Like Money Market the president introduced, this medical outreach is also for the traders,” he said.
