Johnson Edosomwan

Founder, Nigeria Democratic Congress Party () and presidential aspirant for the 2019 election, Dr. , has said that he would create over seven million jobs for Nigerian youths each year if elected as the president of Nigeria come 2019. The Edo State-born businessman and philanthropist who spoke with THISDAY said these jobs would be created in multidimensional facets, adding that there would be job creation in manufacturing, healthcare, education, infrastructure, roads and so forth.

“We would create at least seven million jobs per year. And also we want to create multidimensional industry, we want to move away from just relying on oil as the only source we use for our revenue, we want to manufacture. We want to start manufacturing our own cars and motorcycles here in Nigeria. We have Nigerians that have the power and training to do that. The reason why we don’t have industries here is because investors are running away due to lack of electricity. We want to create solar energy, wind energy, hydroelectricity and even nuclear energy, if we can,” he noted.

Edosomwan who claimed that the problems that Nigeria is facing at the moment, are problems, he has solved all through his life, noted, “I have done that in large corporations, organisations and countries and in the course of these I have solved all sorts of problems and I can do the same if I am elected the president of Nigeria.”

“I am a pioneer in the whole issue of leadership and so I know how to lead and manage people. But I also know how to follow; I know how to build teams and how to work with diverse group of people. We are a very diverse country with people from different tribes and religions and I have the ability to bring these various groups of people together to work for the nation,” he added.

Edosomwan who said he would be working with a six point agenda, that would afford opportunities for more jobs in the country, noted that the lack of electricity has been the major drawback in the economic growth of the nation. “The reason we don’t have industries here is because investors are running away due to lack of electricity. We want to create solar energy, wind energy, hydroelectricity and even nuclear energy, if we can. All of these options are in the open onto the table.”

“Right now in every facet of Nigeria, you only have 15 per cent productivity, 85 per cent of the productivity is wasted because they lack electricity to do their work. And then we don’t even have a good telephone system, so how can you really create a good economy? The roads are not good, so we want high speed rail. I was going from Ikeja to the airport and it took us two and half hours sweating, a journey that would have take about five minutes. So those are the issues that we want to deal with. The average Nigerians are suffering and we want to turn their suffering to success,” he noted.
