Tinubu in Osun, promises to tackle youth unemployment, if elected



Sen. Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), on Thursday said he would tackle youth unemployment in the country, if elected the next president of the country.

Speaking during the APC presidential campaign in Osogbo, Tinubu said he would establish more industries to address unemployment in the country.

While saying that it was painful that many youths were not gainfully employed, Tinubu promised to address the situation by making jobs available, if elected.

“We will establish industries. We will provide jobs for you. Your parents did not send you to schools to suffer in vain, you will prosper, you will become lawyers, doctors and great people.

“All youths searching for jobs will get jobs. I want to assure you that whoever wants to learn a craft will do so conveniently.

“For those who are in school, you will not spend more than four years in school for a four-year course.

“You will use four years to finish your studies. We will lend money to those who are not financially capable.

“Whatever your school fees is, we will pay it. No child of the poor will be left out. We are all equal,” he said.

Tinubu urged the electorate not to allow the ongoing fuel scarcity to discourage them, saying where they would cast their votes is not far from their houses.

He also appealed to the electorate to vote for him and other APC candidates in the election.

Tinubu, who also spoke on the ongoing judicial battle between former Gov. Gboyega Oyetola and the incumbent Gov. Ademola Adeleke of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), said he was optimistic that Oyetola will reclaim his mandate

He said that it took the party more than three years to reclaim the mandate of former Gov. Rauf Aregbesola, adding that no matter the duration of the case, “Oyetola will come back”

“We have been fighting ever since. We fought for three years for Aregbesola before we got it from the PDP. Or have you forgotten?

“This is not the first time that we will fight for our right in court and we will be victorious,” he said.

Dignitaries at the rally included; Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano, Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos, Gov. Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State, Femi Gbajabiamila, Speaker, House of Representatives, Gboyega Oyetola, former Osun governor, former Gov. Kayode Fayemi, of Ekiti, Chief Iyiola Omisore, APC National Secretary and Mr Sunday Dare, Minister of Youth and Sport.
