Beauticians, Hairdressers Endorse Makinde For Second Term

The Nigerian Beautician Hairdressers Association (NBHA), Oyo State chapter, has declared its support for the speculated second term ambition of Governor ‘Seyi Makinde.

This is as the association commended the governor for, as it said, running people-oriented programmes and his transformational leadership in the state.

The association declared that, based on the successes recorded in the last two years of the Makinde administration across all sectors, it would back the governor to run for another term of four years.


Members of the Oyo NBHA said these when they paid a solidarity visit to the Government Secretariat, Agodi, Ibadan, in commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the association.

As contained in a statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the governor, Mr. Taiwo Adisa, the founder of the association, Chief Mrs. Olubunmi Adesanya, commended Makinde for his good work in the state.

She noted that their businesses have benefited positively from the prompt payment of salaries and other policies and maintained that the policies of the Makinde administration have made life more meaningful for traders and the people of the state.

The association equally enjoined the governor to continue to better the lives of the people of Oyo State through the provision of social amenities, just as they solicited for a loan scheme which would assist and support their members’ businesses.

Adesanya said: “You have made life better for traders in the state. You asked us not to pay school fees for our children. Your programmes and policies have been making life more comfortable for traders and residents of Oyo State. We should have come earlier.

“There is comfort in Oyo State and we thank you. There is prompt payment of salaries, which is also reflecting on our businesses. If salaries are paid promptly, then it means the government is paying market men and women.”

She urged the governor not to be distracted but to keep his focus on the delivery of dividends of democracy to all the length and breadth of Oyo State, as she said that traders were solidly behind his government.

In his response, Governor Makinde, represented by the Commissioner for Investment, Trade and Industries, Olasunkanmi Olaleye, assured the NBHA that his administration would continue to make life more comfortable for the people through policies and people-centered programmes.

He added that his government would get to address the issue of providing assistance to traders in the state with a view to enabling them to have access to money to trade without being subjected to untold hardship.

“I congratulate and celebrate with you for being able to put yourselves together massively like this. As a government, we appreciate your support and how you have been helping the state, creating jobs and spreading the good word on security and other key policies of the administration,” he said.
