Tinubu to provide 1 million jobs in first 24 months

2023 Elections: Tinubu the best person for Nigeria – Lalong

Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, has recently pledged to generate one million jobs in the first 24 months of his presidency if he wins the general elections in 2023.

Creebhills reports that the former Lagos Deputy Governor Otunba Femi Pedro gave this assurance in Abuja when he explained the manifesto of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu at a one-way symposium moments ago.

According to Pedro, Tinubu has 12 key economic points to get Nigeria out of the current economic doldrum.

Other key economic activities that Tinubu will implement, he said, include: to bring back manufacturing companies like Dunlop that left the country many years ago; resuscitate the commodity boards; empower women; expand infrastructure provision and curtail the run- away inflation.

Meanwhile, Atiku Abubakar and Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and All Progressives Congress (APC) respectively, were missing at a town hall meeting for presidential candidates on Sunday.

The presidential town hall series is an initiative of Arise Television and the Centre for Democracy and Development.

The candidates in attendance are Peter Obi, the flagbearer of the Labour Party; Rabiu Kwakwanso, presidential candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, and Kola Abiola, the standard bearer of the Peoples Redemption Party.

Ifeanyi Okowa, Delta state governor and vice-presidential candidate of the PDP, was in attendance to represent the party’s flagbearer.

Commenting on the absence of the PDP presidential candidate at the town hall meeting, Okowa said Atiku secured permission from the organizers to be away.

The Delta governor said: “He (Atiku) is outside the country. We duly obtained the permission of the organisers for him to be represented.

“When it is time for debates, we will get into it. But this time, it is a town hall. Atiku has asked me to represent him.”

There was however no representative for the presidential candidate of the ruling APC.

The agenda for the first presidential town hall meeting is the security situation of the country.
