The Labour Party (LP) Kwara state chapter governorship candidate, Comrade Issa Aremu, has said that his government if elected in March, would create factories in the 16 local government areas in the state.
The LP governorship candidate also promised to raise literacy level in the state at 90 per cent even as he pledged that elderly person of 60 years of age and above would enjoy special cash grant.
Speaking at the 23rd media interactive session organised by the Kwara State Council of Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) for candidates seeking political offices in the state ahead of 2019 general elections, Comrade Aremu said that there was the need to resuscitate moribund industries in the state if the economy of the 51-year-old state must pick up again.
He said the rationale behind the revival of industries and companies by his government was a calculated attempt to generate massive employment opportunities and increase the state Gross Domestic Products (GDP) for better living of all and sundry.
Aremu stated that he had offered himself to put an end to 16 years of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kwara state and called on Kwarans to hold him accountable if he fails to redeem his electioneering campaign.
He said that the major vehicle for enduring prosperity in all known human societies is the availability of industries that will not only lubricate the economy but also provide numerous job opportunities for the teeming unemployed youth and adults.

Aremu noted that the LP manifesto was hinged on ‘five Ps’ which he mentioned as People, Prosperity, Popular Participation, Partnership and Peace, pointing out that his blueprint as a democratic labour governor God willing is encapsulated in the above 5-Ps.
