“The fact remains that in the last four years under Jonathan, more businesses have been opened in telecommunication, banking, oil and gas, transport, aviation, hospitality, automobile, education, agriculture, healthcare and manufacturing sectors with an unprecedented expansion rate, providing business and employment opportunities for millions of our citizens across the country”, the party said.
This according to the PDP was made possible by the application of a multi-sectoral development strategy of the Jonathan administration in the critical sectors and direct government empowerment interventions through programmes such as YouWin and SURE-P Graduate Internship Scheme among others.
The party noted that the guarantee of a more prosperous future is strengthened by the Nagropreneurs Initiative of the Jonathan administration, the N220 billion Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Development Fund to empower graduates and other young people to own their own businesses, the National industrial Revolution Plan (NIRP), and the National Enterprise Development Programme (NEDEP) expected to generate no fewer than five million direct jobs before the end of 2015.”
The PDP pointed out that apart from employment generation, the revolution in these key sectors also guarantees technology transfer, reduction in costs and increase in investment opportunities.
‘It is disingenuous to accuse everyone who calls for restructuring as trying to break up the county. History tells us that that kind of cheap blackmail will not work as long as the underlying reasons for the agitations persist.’
‘The biggest challenge seems to be that we seem to be allowing moderate voices on this issue to be drowned out by the reckless utterances of a few rabble rousers on all sides who may be tools in the hands of those who do not wish this country well. These are some of the people who arrogate to themselves the toga of spokespersons of our diverse groups.’
