Nigeria’s Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, has declared that looters of the country’s treasury would not go unpunished.
Speaking to a mammoth crowd at a rally in Ward 8 Ikpoba-okha local government area of Edo state, he said the All Progressives Congress (APC) under President Muhammadu Buhari has achieved a lot since 2015.
Osinbajo urged the people to vote for the APC and all its candidates so that the country can continue to move forward. He said there was need to sustain progress being recorded in Edo State and the country at large.
Osinbajo noted that the Next Level agenda was about the careful and wise allocation of the nation’s resources to secure a better future for Nigerians.
He stated that Edo people’s votes for APC would allow for the sustenance of effective allocation of the nations’ resources.
He explained that the ruling APC government at the federal level has been able to do more with less resources due to the high premium the government places on accountability and probity.
“Corruption is one of the reasons our country is backward. Buhari is not corrupt and he will not allow anybody to steal our money,” the VP said.
Osinbajo, who listed creation of more jobs, improved power supply and other infrastructure as well as credit intervention as some of the things that the APC intends to do through its Next Level agenda, assured that the federal government is increasing the number of N-Power beneficiaries from 500,000 to one million and added that the Entrepreneur Bank will make money available for youths interested in business.
He informed the people that the federal government was in support of Edo State government’s plan to establish its own independent power plant to support the state’s economic development.
Governor Godwin Obaseki, who expressed appreciation to APC supporters in Ikboba-Okha, said he was counting on them to ensure victory for the party in the 2019 elections.
“Ikpoba-Okha has about 260,000 voters, so I am counting on you to deliver all our candidates in the elections,” the governor said.
