CPC Will Create 5 Million Jobs in Four Years - Bakare

Port Harcourt — CONGRESS for Progressive Change (CPC) said yesterday that would create five million jobs for unemployed youths across the country within the first four years of its administration, if it wins the presidential election.
Presidential running mate of the CPC, Pastor Tunde Bakare who disclosed this during the unveiling of the party's manifesto in Port Harcourt on Tuesday, explained that the party would create a minimum of two million direct jobs and three million indirect jobs to the benefit of youths and other Nigerians.

Bakare also said that a CPC government led by Muhammad Buhari would establish state and community police and, noting that the current situation where police personnel were posted to terrains they were not conversant with would not bring out the best in them.
He said the party would not promise what it would not be able to deliver; saying the creation of a state and community police would help security agents to track down criminals to their hideouts anywhere in the country.
The Vice Presidential standard bearer decry the lack of proper equipment to fight crime in the country, just as he said the police would be become more efficient when such facilities are made available to the force.

He said: "A CPC-led government will ensure that there will be a state police and a community police that can track down criminals. When criminals are caught in the country, nobody takes their fingerprints because there are no fingerprint machines in our police stations.
"More jobs can be created in that area because we will also need people to handle fingerprint machines and ensure that records of criminals in our midst are scanned and recorded," the presidential running mate said.

He promised that the party would run a transparent, responsive and responsible government, while noting with sadness that the ruling Peoples Democratic Party was yet to achieve any of its seven-point agenda in the last four years.
Pastor Bakare said the administration of Buhari would ensure that the nation's recurrent expenditure would not go beyond 30 percent while its capital expenditure would be 70 percent, adding that except the leadership in the country developed the nation's infrastructure, it would be difficult for Nigeria to grow.

"The task ahead of us is monumental and the party is just one year-old. You can see that about 60 million Nigerians generate their own electricity and they spend about N1.3 trillion every year to generate electricity.
