Buhari’ll create 720,000 jobs —Osinbajo
The Vice-Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo (SAN), says Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), will create 20,000 jobs in each state of the federation.
Osinbajo said this at the Osogbo City Stadium on Wednesday while addressing a crowd at the end of a 10-kilometre walk tagged “Walk for Change Nigeria.”
He lamented the massive youth unemployment in the country, saying the APC government would address this immediately if Buhari was voted in as the President in February.
He said, “We will provide 20,000 jobs in each of the states of Nigeria when we are elected.
“We will revive our agricultural sector by providing a ready-made market for farmers and encourage them, as the government will be purchasing their farm produce.
“Our government will also engage in feeding of our primary school pupils with free lunch across the country, just as we will embark on massive road construction.
“The elderly and the physically challenged would also not be left out as our government would be giving them allowances.”
Osinbajo said the party had a strong belief that its presidential candidate would be voted into power.
Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregbesola, while addressing the crowd challenged President Goodluck Jonathan to come out for a debate to defend himself on how he had run the country.
He said that Jonathan had not done anything to deserve a re-election.
Aregbesola stated that the President had fallen out of favour even among the cleric while drawing the attention of the people to the advice of Rev Fr. Ejike Mbaka, asking Jonathan to resign.
Aregbesola urged Nigerians to troop out and effect change through their votes in the February 14 election.
He said Buhari had resolved to turn around the fortunes of Nigeria for the better.
