Edo 2016: I will provide jobs for youths – Aspirant


Abuja  –  Mr Kenneth Imansuangbon, an aspirant in the September, 2016 governorship election in Edo, said he would provide jobs for youths as he did in the private sector, if elected.
Imansuangbon stated this on Wednesday in Abuja while briefing newsmen at the National Secretariat of All Progressives Congress (APC) after collecting form for the race.
According to him, youths in the state will be the better for it if I become the governor of Edo.
He said that he had contributed greatly in creating jobs in the private sector, and would put in place strategies that would ensure massive job creation in the state if elected.
”I am running because I believe that the Edo people need an experienced person to create jobs.
”Boys and girls must be taken off the streets and to do this, you need an experienced hand from the private sector.
”What makes America great is not the guns or nuclear weapons they have but the ability to feed every American.
”I will be the number one chief farmer in Edo state; I will create farm industries. I will make everyone a farmer.
”I am known as the rice man and this year we will create rice farms, rice plantations close to the sea which is my local government.
”We will make juice of all kinds, tomato paste, and of course, bread. Everybody will be busy, meaning that crime will reduce.
”Rather than arm the police, I will arm the youth with jobs,” Imansuangbon said.
He added that apart from jobs, he would strengthen education and improve on the successes of Gov. Adams Oshiomhole.
On zoning in the party, the aspirant said: ”I am not an apostle of zoning. The world today needs the very best to be in government.
”We need the new. I am glad the party does not encourage zoning.

“It is weak politicians that are fanning the embers of zoning but if you are credible, pick the form and contest.
”On the flip side I believe in equity. It will not be proper for you to take the governor, jump the Central and go to the South.
”By law, Osunbor was never a governor and so we have not had our turn. The north has ruled for eight years and the south has ruled for almost 20 years.”
He thanked the party’s National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, for his wisdom in constituting the fact finding and reconciliation committee to wade into the party’s crisis in the state.
Imasuagbon said that the party was now ”more united now than ever and the PDP can fold its umbrella”.
Another aspirant who also picked the party’s form, Maj.-Gen. Charles Airhiavbere (retd), told newsmen that he had pledged his loyalty to the party.
He said, ”the primary will be peaceful, the party is supreme and I have pledged my loyalty to the party.
”The party will come out with a candidate that will flog the PDP.
“PDP in Edo state has become complacent; we were the strong ones in the state and we have moved.’’ (NAN)
