She said that ACPN is positioned to promote economic and educational policies that will better the livelihood of ordinary Nigerians, especially the marketers and entrepreneurs.
“As soon as we assume office, I will ensure that children of the ordinary traders in the market receive free education.
“We have discovered that majority of children hawking on streets during school hours are children of common Nigerians and petty traders.
“My aspiration is geared towards ensuring that killings are stopped in the country and every family has food on their table,” she said.
