The minister of labour and employment, Dr. Chris Ngige said President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration empowered 15,000 youths from Anambra state and fed over 300,000 pupils under his administration’s school feeding programme.
Ngige, who made this revelation at Holy Trinity field, Onitsha during All Progressive Congress, APC campaign flag off urged the people of the state to ignore some people he described as attention seekers and vote President Buhari and other APC candidates come February 16 poll.
On his part, the National chairman of APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomole noted with regret that lots of Nigeria leaders bear Igbo names but were unable to complete any tangible project in the entire south east.
“Some of them answer names like Ebele Azikiwe without trace of any achievement in the zone throughout their tenure. But President Muhammadu Buhari within his three and half years as Nigeria president, completed and commissioned Zik’s mausoleum, paid for contract of second Niger bridge and also intensified effort to complete the Enugu-Onitsha expressway.
Oshiomole however urged the Igbo not to be received but vote APC and President Buhari as he has lots of goodies for the Igbo people.
Speaking, President Muhammadu Buhari said his administration has made achievement in three key areas of security, economic growth and corruption. “Before we came on board, Boko Haram captured about seven local government Areas in Borno state but today, through the effort of my administration, Boko Haram is no longer holding any local government hostage.
“Our economy has improved greatly under my watch and we are not relenting in fighting corruption. This administration has succeeded in fighting corruption to a standstill in Nigeria. All the loopholes by which politicians steal our common wealth have been blocked” he said.
