The Lagos State Planks and Building Materials Marketers Association (LSPBMMA) marked a milestone in the history of their organisation as they celebrated their 30th anniversary.
According to the president of LSPBMMA, Alhaji Lateef Adelodun, the purpose of the event was to strengthen ties and to canvass support for the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Sanwo Olu.
To demonstrate their oneness, the traders showed up at the event in uniformed Ankara clothing. Some members received awards for their contribution to the society.
At the event, the Governor of Lagos State, Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu sought partnership of the association to win the forthcoming 2023 general elections.
Sanwo-Olu who was represented by Cornelius Ojelabi, Lagos State APC chairman, spoke at the association’s 30 anniversary last week.
Calling for partnership, Sanwo-Olu said his team would continue to create an enabling environment for businesses to thrive without closing down any or carrying out anti-people policies.
According to him, LSPBMMA has contributed immensely to the development of the state and that’s why he always involved them in his administration. He also said he knows the contributions of the group to the state economy.
