Akpanudoedehe promises 30,000 A’Ibom residents N1m each

Senator James Akpanudoedehe, the governorship candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party in Akwa Ibom State has decried the high level of poverty, hunger, and unemployment plaguing the people of the state.

This was made known on Tuesday by the former National Secretary of the All Progressives Congress Caretaker/Extra Ordinary Convention Planning Committee through the Director media of his campaign organisation, Solomon Johnny, on Tuesday.

Akpanudoedehe said no fewer than 1,000 persons in the 31 Local Government Areas of Akwa Ibom State would be empowered with N1m each to run small and medium scale enterprises, become self-sufficient, and generate employment for others.

He said the Peoples Democratic party had not done well to address these needs, which he described as the “most dangerous and compelling needs of the Akwa Ibom people.”

The former APC chieftain said, “We have an economic stimulus plan which will act as first aid to poverty, unemployment and hunger.

“We intend to empower 1,000 persons in each Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State with N1,000,000 each to run small and medium scale enterprises to become self-sufficient and generate employment, no matter how small, to others.

“If Akwa Ibom State will give NNPP the opportunity to form the next government by electing Senator John Akpanudoedehe as governor, each year, about 31,000 people would have been so empowered to defeat poverty and in four years that a tenure runs, about 124,000 citizens would have been lifted above the poverty and unemployment mark.
