The governorship candidate of the Action Alliance, (AA), Olayinka Buraimoh has promised to make women and youths empowerment the fulcrum of his administration if elected at the November 11 Governorship election in the state.
Buraimoh in an interview shortly after meeting with women groups in Lokoja on Tuesday said that women form the bedrock of family prosperity, they are multiplier and so should be mobilised to multiply the resources of the state.
“I grew up to realise that women are multiplier,give them anything,they will multiply it,they are the one that engage in petty trades and grassroot jobs, they also look after the family when the head is not around, that is why we have put them at the center of our administration” he said.
According to him “Youths on the other hand form the future of any state and should be carried along in the scheme of things, we will empower them through the instrumentality of job creation and engaging them in profitable ventures by way of taking them out of the streets to reduce crimes and casualties in the state.”
He also advised those fanning the embers of violence to have a rethink as they themselves would be the first casualty of the violence they have initiated.
“Agents of violence should remember that they are bringing destruction onto themselves , they will be the first casualties of the violence they have caused” the AA candidate added.
