Residents have started to react to the one hundred million naira grant given out to Market Women in Edo State by Governor Adams Oshiomhole during a recent engagement.
Sharon Ajayi reports that while some condemned the gesture in view of the number of uncompleted projects in the City, some others feel that is done in good faith.

Some respondents who are obviously angered by the action of the state governor described it as unwarranted and uncalled for. They said the money should have been channeled to improving the infrastructural development of the state.
Other respondents however lauded the state governor’s action which they say will help boost economic growth of the state. They advised the market women to judiciously utilize the money.
