THE candidate of the Zenith Labour Party in the Anambra State governorship election, Dr Obiora Okonkwo, has promised to produce 1, 000 millionaires annually, if elected the governor.
He said he had perfected a template that would enable him to do this seamlessly under a graduate/apprenticeship empowerment initiative to be implemented immediately he is sworn in.
The ZLP candidate said with prudent management of resources, the scheme would be drawn from a dedicated N1 billion state’s annual budget, representing 0.7 per cent of the N143bn Anambra budget.
He said “The scheme is targeted at raising three millionaires each from the 326 wards and additional 21 from the 21 Local Government Areas and one representing the state.
“It is designed to support registered young Anambra graduates as well as those who are engaged in or have completed their apprenticeship under masters in productive sectors, registered with the scheme.
“Beneficiaries under the scheme will be supported with interest-free but intensely monitored facilities in addition to growth incentives and support which include government referrals and guarantees for higher financial windows for expanded participation in gainful offshore and onshore businesses.”
