The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu yesterday assured the people of Osun State and his party supporters of his commitment to create jobs for the unemployed and make credit available for business owners in the state.
Tinubu made the comment while speaking in Yoruba to a mammoth crowd who thronged the venue of the campaign rally at Freedom Park, Osogbo, the state capital.
He said his administration would empower the people with the skill that will make them employable while ensuring that the youth will no longer spend years in university due to lecturers’ strike action.
A statement from Tinubu’s media aide, Tunde Rahman, quoted the APC presidential candidate as saying: “I make a social covenant with you today that the unemployed among you will get a job. Those with no skill will be provided the relevant skill that would put food on their table. When we get to the government, we will make soft loans available for market women and business owners”.
Taking a swipe at the Peoples Democratic Party-led government of Governor Ademola Adeleke in Osun State, the APC presidential candidate assured the people that former Governor Gboyega Oyetola would soon return to government in the state.
He said: “They were given little opportunity to rule for some months and they started misbehaving, killing and creating unrest in Osun State”.
On his plans for the state, Tinubu noted that the state, which is highly blessed with diverse resources, should be a destination for business and tourism across the country, promising to help achieve this if he becomes the president.
He also itemised further things his administration will do in the agricultural, educational and security sectors to give a befitting life to the people.
