Delta State Governor, Dr.Ifeanyi Okowa, has blamed the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for the rising hunger and poverty in the country due to its poor management of the economy.

 
Okowa, the vice presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), stated this at an empowerment programme for the people of Ika Federal Constituency, by the member representing the constituency in the House of Representatives, Mr Victor Nwokolo.

The event was held at Boji-Boji Owa in Ika North East Local Council.

The governor accompanied by the Speaker of the state House of Assembly and PDP’s governorship candidate in the state, Chief Sheriff Oborevwori, and the state party Chairman, Chief Kingsley Esiso, commended Nwokolo for giving hope to his constituents, describing the event as “empowerment programme with a difference.”
 
Okowa said Nigeria was troubled because people were hungry and out of job due to mismanagement of the economy, adding that even students were having challenges, because their parents could not meet their needs owing to the level of poverty resulting from ineptitude of the APC-led Federal Government.

He, therefore, urged Nigerians to support the PDP as the only party with a clear understanding of the country’s challenges and a clear solution to rescue it.
 
He commended Nwokolo for the empowerment, noting that it was a show of love to the people, just as he charged the beneficiaries to utilise the items and equipment for the common good of the people.
 
Earlier, Nwokolo said that the empowerment was to restore hope to the hopeless amid rising hunger and poverty in the land.

 
He commended Okowa for providing leadership and for his efforts in empowering the people through the various entrepreneurial programmes of the state.
 
Items presented at the ceremony included cars, mini-buses, tricycles, cassava processing machines, oil processing mills, block processing equipment, generators, transformers, sewing machines, educational grant and motor cycles.
