Emeka Ihedioha is giving assurance that if he is elected, his
government will create over 50, 000 direct and indirect jobs through tourism and entertainment.
The Imo State governorship flagbearer of PDP made the promise in Owerri at a town hall meeting with the Imo Arts Community, comprising the Association of Nigerian Authors, ANA, Actors Guild of Nigeria, AGN, Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria, PMAN, Association of Gospel Artists, AGA, Professional DJ’s Association, PRODJA, and National Association Nigerian
Theatre Practitioners, NANTAP.
“I have a strong view that the Arts Community in any society is a critical sector that drives the society and its conscience,” Ihedioha stated. “I thought it wise to interact with you on the way forward for our state ahead of the general elections, for us to find a common ground of partnership in our Rebuild Imo Project. This is a time to be very careful and serious in the life of our state.”
He promised, “I can tell you that culture, tourism and entertainment, have the capacity to create over 50,000 direct and indirect jobs and we shall accomplish that by the grace of God when we assume office. The effect of our development plan in tourism will be crime reduction and wealth creation. I am coming with a different ideology, anchored on the fear of God, passion for service, experience and capacity and track record of achievement.”
