. . . Vows to Expose Constituents to ICT Business, Programmes
The candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for Anambra-central in the forthcoming general elections, Chief Sylvester Okonkwo, says his sole focus will be on human capital development if elected, even as he vowed to expose his constituents, especially the youth on ICT business and programmes.
Chief Okonkwo who stated this while interacting with journalists at his campaign office in Awka said Igbo nation say APC was Boko Haram without realizing that the same APC was easiest step for an Igbo president to emerge.
He noted that Ndigbo should naturally be in the vanguard of promoting Buhari’s government and his policies in their zone so that in 2023, it would be the turn of the southeast region to produce next president of Nigeria.
Okonkwo expressed regrets that the PDP denied him opportunities for twenty years having served the party in various capacities. He emphasized that the Peoples Democratic Party does not border about equity, justice and good conscience and that the party doesn’t reward hardwork and commitment.
The APC senatorial candidate who said he was one of the pioneers of the Nigerian Telecommunication Industry expressed confidence that president Muhammadu Buhari has won the 2019 presidential election because the APC according to him controlled 23 states of the federation while the PDP has only 12 minority states.
He said that in the last three weeks, president Buhari has given N33 billion to Julius Berger Construction Company to commence work on the Second Niger Bridge which he noted the PDP government didn’t do in 16 years.
According to him, Onitsha-Enugu and some other federal roads in the southeast region were currently witnessing aggressive construction as well as completion of some portions of the roads and that it is on record that president Buhari completed Zik’s Moseleum in Onitsha which he observed that no president of the PDP thought that the first Nigerian president deserved a befitting resting place.
Okonkwo also pointed out that the PDP government left Nigeria with about 2.8 mega watt of electricity but the APC government has scaled it up to 7.8 mega watts and equally hopes to further scale it up to 11.5 mega watts adding that the APC government meant well for all Nigerians including Ndigbo.
