APC commends Lagos over poverty alleviation scheme

share on:

The All Progressives Congress has lauded the Lagos State Government on its Economic Empowerment Programme for the Unemployed in the state.
The party said the programme would help deal with the challenges with hosting the largest concentration of Nigerian educated and non educated youths in the face of poverty in the country.
In a statement by the Lagos State Publicity Secretary of the APC, Joe Igbokwe, the party said the government and the APC had demonstrated their readiness to deal with the problems of poverty being exacerbated by the anti people policy of the PDP-led Federal Government.
The APC said, “We are glad that the Lagos State Government has flagged off this epic programme that targets the downtrodden and unemployed Nigerians who continue to get disempowered and poor by the deliberate policies of the PDP federal government.
“We are aware that the World Bank ranks Nigeria as the country with the third largest population of poor people and has projected that by 2015, Nigeria will become the country with the largest number of poor people in the world.
“We see this as a dreaded scenario and we are happy that the APC government is responsive to the plight of Nigerians, who are increasingly targeted by the mass pauperisation policies the PDP has made the cornerstone of its governance for nearly sixteen years.”
