Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State and vice-presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party has said that rising hunger and poverty in the country are caused by poor management of the nation’s economy by the All Progressives Congress-led Federal Government.
Okowa stated this, Saturday, during an empowerment program in Boji-Boji Owa, Ika North-East Local Government Area of the state.
He said, “Nigeria is troubled because people are hungry and out of jobs due to mismanagement of the nation’s economy.
“Even students are having lots of challenges because their parents can not meet their needs owing to the level of poverty resulting from the ineptitude of the APC-led Federal Government.
“The important thing is that we know the issues troubling our nation and we have a clear pathway for rescuing and rebuilding the nation.”
Okowa, therefore, urged Nigerians to support the PDP.
He said it was the only party with a clear understanding of the nation’s challenges and had a clear solution to rescue the nation.
He also hoped that the students who benefitted from the empowerment program would study hard and become successful for the good of their families and the people.
