Oshoniyi, Animashaun-Ajiboye advise Tinubu, Obi, Atiku on empowerment
Presidential candidates, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu of All Progressives Congress (APC); Alhaji Atiku Abubakar of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Mr. Peter Obi of Labour Party (LP) have been asked to prioritise empowerment policies, especially for women and youths in their manifestos.
President of Isolo Rotary Club, Dr. Femi Atilade Oshoniyi, and founder, Positive Dynamix, Peace and Development Initiative (PD,PDI), Dr. Khairat Animashaun-Ajiboye, made the calls at different fora.
The duo, who were into various empowerment programmes, said though government could not do it alone, it should create the enabling environment for private participation.
Oshoniyi, who empowered market women in Isolo, Okota communities, said: “The escalating rate of insecurity, youth unrest and prostitution, even among tertiary institutions and others, could be linked with poverty level across the country.”
Animashaun-Ajiboye, who empowered underprivileged people in Festac Town with cash donations and motivational lectures on how to eradicate poverty, said: “I believe Asiwaju Tinubu has the policy solution to address the issue of poverty. He can deploy the tactics he used in Lagos to tackle current challenges facing Nigeria.”
