Delta State Governor's aide on Special Duties (Media), Mr. Ossai Ovie Success, has berated a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state over his statement during a street campaign that Governor Ifeanyi Okowa has no plan for Delta youths.
Ossai said the chief promoter of the APC candidate for Warri South Constituency 1 bye-election, Chief Ayiri Emami is either being economical with the truth or lacks adequate information on the achievements of the Okowa government, stating that despite the recession in the nation, the Governor has created over 17,173 jobs through prudent management of resources.
Ossai who berated Chief Emami in Warri during the weekend over his statement said: “Chief Emami needs to be enlightened because if you are not informed you will be deformed. All he said goes to show that he lacks proper information regarding the achievements of the Government of Delta State.”
According to Ossai, “It is no longer news that Nigeria as a nation has been under recession and that has hindered a lot of possibilities but in Delta State the story is different.
“Since August 2015, when Gov Okowa launched the Job and Wealth Creation Scheme with the following programmes viz; Youth Agricultural Entrepreneurs Programme (YAGEP), Skills Training and Entrepreneurship Programme (STEP), and Production and Processing Support Programme (PPSP), a total of 17,173 private sector jobs have been created.”
Ossai said adding that this figure consists of 6,800 direct jobs and 10,373 indirect jobs of both skilled and unskilled worker.
