The governorship candidate of Accord party in the November 6 election in Anambra State, Dr. Godwin Maduka, has outlined solution to insecurity, unemployment and other problems bedevilling the state.
Maduka, a doctor, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Awka yesterday that the party had mapped out lasting solution to the challenges, if voted to power.
He said an increase in literacy level and attraction of foreign investors to the state would solve insecurity and unemployment.
“We are ready and we are working to rescue the people of Anambra State.
“The state has been witnessing unprecedented level of insecurity ranging from communal clashes to armed robbery, assassination, kidnapping and cultism.
“Insecurity is birthed from a lack of job and money.
“If I become the governor, we are going to change the narrative by encouraging foreign investors and Anambra billionaires to come, invest and establish their companies in the state.
“About 30 to 40 per cent of the Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) in Lagos is from the Igbo. You can imagine what will happen if they come home and replicate same.
“We will partner some of these investors to build institutions that will create employment and wealth for our people.”
“The kind of IGR we will get from Nnewi, Onitsha and other metropolis, plus the allocation from Abuja will be enough to drive infrastructural development in the state, especially the education sector.
“Increasing literacy level will help change the thinking and attitude of residents and youths, so that they will shun vices that fuel insecurity in the state,” Maduka said.
The governorship candidate said he would also ensure decency in politics to discourage people from idolising corruption, violence and thuggery.
He urged the people to vote for Accord Party during the election, to witness integrity and real development commensurate with the resources of the state.
