The candidate of the Young Progressives Party, YPP, for Abia Central Senatorial District in the 2023 general election, Chief Chuku Wachuku has shed further lights on his family economic empowerment programme which he intends to bring aboard if he emerges winner in 2023.
The empowerment expert said it has become worrisome that the only empowerment programme known to Nigerians especially in the South-East region, is Keke Napep, stating that such kind of empowerment doesn’t encourage free flow of wealth in a society.
Chief Wachuku who dropped the hint while interacting with newsbuka.com on Tuesday, revealed that his campaign thrust has focused on Family Economic Empowerment – Not Keke Napep Empowerment, Good and Sustainable Jobs – Not rice ( 2 cups per person), Wealth Creation – Not gifts, Transfer of Power to the Next Generation among other thrusts that will pull the people of Abia Central Senatorial District from poverty.
The Former DG, National Directorate of Employment, NDE, noted that in his family Economic Empowerment programme, the family and her members must first be self-sustaining as to have food on their tables, adding that to achieve this, realizable means of livelihood must be created through purposeful legislations.
Speaking further, Chief Wachuku reiterated that instead of Keke Napep Empowerment, people should have access to funds/loans to start up their own businesses and be able to sustain their families and take care of themselves.
The astute politician who also shed more light on his job creation policy, hinted that he proposes establishment of what he calls Abia Central Economic Zone (ACEZ) wherein industrial clusters will be created per electoral ward, emphasising that the idea is to establish one major industry per ward that will employ not less than 250 persons just as he stated that this will be private sector driven.
Chief Wachuku on a general note, urged the people of Abia Central Senatorial zone to shine their eyes and not be deceived by serial contestants who do not have nothing to offer them, expressing optimism that their lives are about to change if he is elected in 2023.
