From PAUL OSUYI, Asaba
Governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta State and renowned banker, Olorogun O’tega Emerhor, has promised to set aside N10 billion as empowerment funds within the first 100 days of administration if elected.
Emerhor said the N10 billion will be used as financial aid to assist budding entrepreneurs especially women and youths within local communities, adding that access points will be created at local government headquarters for the beneficiaries.
Speaking at Agbor, Ika South Local Government Area of the state during the flag off of his campaign for the February 28 election, Emerhor noted that venture capitalist consultants will also be on hand to give business guidance to such budding entrepreneurs.
“We are from the business community and we know how to turn little capital into flourishing businesses. As individuals, we have been turning around dead businesses, and we know that there are many dead businesses in Delta State.”
“We will turn these businesses around to create employment for our people and boost our economy. We are going to turn the state around from the under-development that has bedeviled it in the past 16 years,” he added.
