The Governorship Candidate of the
Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) in Delta State , Chief Immanuel Abel Edijala has said that his government if elected would attract about one hundred large scale manufacturing companies to the State in the next four years.
In an interview, Chief Edijala said the companies once they come onboard would take away about one million unemployed youths from the street.
He expressed optimism that PRP will form the next administration in the state, adding that Deltans must come out en mass to perform their civil responsibility.
Speaking on his POWER agenda for Delta, the PRP governorship candidate said ” POWER stands for Productivity, Order, Wealth creation, Education and Reengineering of our critical infrastructure.
“I want to drive an efficient and productive economy capable of exporting world class finished goods and services. So my target is to attract 100 large scale manufacturing companies to the State in the next four years. This will take away one million people out of the job market and increase their earning capacities”.
While speaking on the Okowa people’s Democratic Party (PDP) 8 years administration, Edijala said with the outcome of presidential election on the 25th February 2023, it clearly shown that the party has failed.
“My confidence is based on the fact that the average voter in Delta State is yearning for change. I want the Masses to come out in their numbers like never before to vote for me and they will certainly reap the true dividends of democracy. I assure them it will not be business as usual as I will rebuild this trust once more in their government.
“The votes certainly will count so they should not be despondent in any way. The votes of Delta in the presidential contest was a reflection of the mood of Deltans, so I am positive that the people are going to be to be more encouraged to cause the upset come 18th of March.
“The people of Delta State have passed that judgement already in the presidential election where Okowa was roundly defeated in his State. If his performance was good enough, he would not have suffered the humiliating defeat in the hands of the Obidents. Delta wants to do away with the old order that will usher in a people oriented government”.
On why he was not featured on the governorship debate hosted by the Arise TV recently, he said ” They obviously have their preferred candidates so they prefer to sell their own Agenda to the people. There was no plain level ground for aspirants and that is not good enough. In their opinion, they believe we are not popular enough but that belittles the point” he said .
