KOWA Party’s Edo Governorship Candidate, Osadolor Promises 300,000 Jobs


The gubernatorial aspirant from KOWA party for the upcoming September 10 Edo State elections, Mr. Thompson Osadolor, has said the he will create about 300,000 direct and indirect jobs of elected into office.

Osadolor said this at some youths organisation’s in Benin on Monday, adding that the jobs will be created through mobile network, agriculture and artisanship.

While noting that agriculture has the potential of creating wealth for over a million of the people within the shortest possible time, Osadolor particularly stressed on providing a new mobile network that will be run as a state enterprise.

He gave reason for this as the exploitative nature of the already established mobile operator, noting however, that when floated, thousands of employment opportunities, direct and indirect, will be created.

He disclosed that he was already in talk with some investors who have expressed interest on the ideas he laid on the table.

While not giving specific time frame for the job creation, Osadolor said substantial part of it will be created within two years in office.

According to him, “As regards the idea of a mobile network, it may seem an uphill task to accomplish to many of us, but discussion on this is on extensively, and positively too.

It is not going to be run by my money, it will be private, but state will however have a substantial stake in it.

“The idea is that apart from the fact that it will end an ear of exploitation of the people in the industry, thousands of direct and indirect jobs will be created.

“It beats me hollow, when I see Nigerians paying so much to make calls, even on the same network. With KOWA Mobile, it will be toll free within the same network.

“Again, another benefit of this is that it will now become cheaper to have all educational institutions, including secondary schools, connected to Wi-fi,” he stated.

On agriculture, the governorship candidate said an agricultural revolution is what he is bringing onboard, adding that the first thing he will do when elected, is to declare a state of emergency on the sector in a bid to reposition the sector.

“Again, thousands of jobs will be unveiled in this area, while the state will not only become agricultural hub of the country, but become food sufficient to its people in particular and the country at large.”
