2023 Tinubu Vows To Cut Down Nigeria Unemployment In 4 Years

The Presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has asserted that should Nigerians elect him as their President on February 25th, he will prune the high unemployment rate in Nigeria in his first four years as president.

He made this known on Tuesday when he addressed party faithful and members on Tuesday at the U.J Esuene Sports Stadium Calabar during a presidential campaign.

‘I will check youth unemployment in this country. I will reduce it by more than half if voted into power next month,’ he said.

Tinubu promised to make Nigeria prosperous and everything humanly possible to turn around the nation’s fortunes.

‘Our economy is unhelpfully designed to export raw materials and import increasingly expensive finished products’.

He added that; ‘Crude oil still provides most of our foreign exchange. As agriculture remains our traditional backbone, we will continue to consolidate it.

‘However, we must acknowledge the growing importance of our urban population,’ he added.

Tinubu assured that Nigerian cities and towns will witness a level of industrial activity unprecedented in the nation’s history.

He said youths would become leading catalysts that drive economic resurgence.

He further pledged to adjust the allocation of revenue between federal and state governments so as to give states greater flexibility to foster grassroots economic development.

‘Our government will give priority to encouraging industries vital to national development by growing our industrial base to provide jobs to an expanding urban population,’ he assured.

In another report, the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has called on the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari to order the investigations into the attack on the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Mr. Peter Obi.

Africa Today News, New York recalls that last Monday, Obi’s convoy was attacked by hoodlums in Katsina on his way to the airport.

The incident has since been condemned by Nigerians and the Obi-Datti Presidential Campaign Council.

According to the campaign team, the said attack occurred after Obi had met with women in a town hall and then held a rally at the Muhammad Dikko Stadium.
