Atiku Releases Policy Document, Promises To Create Three Million Jobs Each Year

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar, has promised to create three million jobs every year if he is elected as president in the 2019 election.

This is one of the key points in the policy document released by the PDP flagbearer today (Sunday), which details a seven-year timeline in which he intends to deliver on his campaign promises.

Giving a breakdown of the rate of unemployment in the country, Atiku said, “Close to 16 million people are unemployed, nine million more than in 2014.

“Over two million new entrants join the labour force each year meaning the unemployed share of the labour force more than tripled in less than a decade: from 5.1% in 2010 to 18.8% in 2017

“Unemployment for women and young people is at 33%, 70% of unemployed youths are uneducated and unskilled.

“Creating jobs and economic opportunities for these people will be vital both for reducing the pool of easy recruits for violent groups and reducing underlying grievances that feed the conflict”.

As a solution, he said his administration, if elected in 2019 will, “Launch a new, more efficient, cost-effective and sustainable national Entrepreneurship Development and Job Creation Programme.

“Target the creation of up to three million self and wage-paying employment opportunities in the private sector annually.

“Target all categories of youth, including graduates, early school leavers as well as the massive numbers of uneducated youth who are currently not in schools, employment or training.

“Create incubation centres, clusters and industrial/commercial hubs to provide a marketplace for MSMEs and SMPs.

“Champion the repositioning and streamlining the activities of the existing Federal and State Government Job Creation Agencies”.

Apart from job creation, the document also lists three other areas of priority namely infrastructure development, human capital development and poverty eradication.

According to the former Vice President, he has plans to lift 50 million Nigerians out of poverty, by 2025.

Furthermore, he stated that he has plans to privatise the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and also sell all four national refineries.

Other areas of focus in terms of infrastructure is the construction of 5,000 kilometres of roads, and 5,000 kilometres of modern railway.

A statement released on Saturday, by the Atiku Campaign Organisation, had explained that Atiku’s decision to kick-start his presidential campaign with the launch of his policy document was to reiterate his commitment to running an issue-based campaign.

It added that the intention was to take their policy directly to Nigerians and to register Atiku’s belief that it would take the collective efforts of every Nigerian to rebuild the country.

It read in part, “That is why we want Nigerians to access the policy directly and ultimately take ownership of it,” it said, adding, “Our campaign offers a simple message: United, the people of Nigeria can begin anew, creating a prosperous and secure future and a better life for every Nigerian.

“Our policy document focuses on creating jobs, ensuring security, growing business, developing power and water infrastructure, agriculture and education and how we will empower women.

“Our policies outline the goals and methods for developing and revitalising Nigeria as the foundation of our campaign. This policy document is being launched to encourage a dialogue with the people of Nigeria, inviting everyone to join us in helping to get Nigeria working again.

“The PDP presidential candidate looks forward to conducting vital discussions as he travels across the length and breadth of Nigeria, meeting and talking with stakeholders – farmers, small business people, workers, students, mothers, and children.”

    If not for anything, I believe this is the first time in a long while that a presidential aspirant in Nigeria has been able to put together, a comprehensive, robust and workable plan for the country. It shows a clear sense of direction for a man who knows what he really wants to do to salvage the economy from total collapse. All I pray is for the political will to implement these policies when you eventually mount the saddle of Nigeria leadership. I stand with you sir.

  20. Francis ketachukwu November 19, 2018 at 1:48 pm

    I believe in you sir. We will give you all the support required for you to win come 2019. My advice will be for you to avoid those politicians that could plot your failure to fulfil on the policies document.

  21. Oyedele Oye November 19, 2018 at 3:45 pm

    Lets continue pray for this president to be. The aforementioned plans is good If strictly followed, it will get Nigeria working again. You deserve my vote n that of my people.

    I think Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is at the right time to be elected and his coming i think is to save the citizen of this country because what we saw now its not a leadership but destruction to humanity where an individual can not afford or account for his or, her living tax both his had working and education even from the government its as if the citizen have no feature just for uncapable hand and lack plane so for me up Atiku for God sake and for his people

    H.E Atiku Abubakar, you have proving beyond reasonably doubt that you meant well for our dear nation. Indeed you are man of little words but filled with surprises and actions, you are a gem of our time. Sir, truly a leader is hard to find but when such a leader is found one can easily identify same.

    Nigeria as a country needs a true leader that can salvage the situation, a leader with dynamic plans just as you have written your name with a Golden pen to #Letnigeriaworkagain. I crave your indulgency and believe in your goals of making Nigeria an enviable nation’s of the world. Let it be in history that you are the first president the ideology of presenting your plans for this Nation. God bless you as we all usher you as OUR NEXT PRESIDENT COME 2019.

  42. Lyam Randolph Iorkumba December 10, 2018 at 2:02 pm

    the issue of job creation is very paramount to the teeing youth in Nigeria all ATIKU need to do is to sign the National peace corps bill, I strongly advised if this issue is mention in his campaign and is able to do it Atiku name will be written in genesis book of record, believe me or live it
