APC cause of poverty, hunger in Nigeria – Okowa
By Gabriel Elozino
Delta State Governor, Sen. (Dr) Ifeanyi Okowa, on Saturday said the rising hunger and poverty in the country are caused by poor management of the nation’s economy by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
He stated this at an empowerment programme for the people of Ika Federal Constituency by the Member representing the constituency at the House of Representatives, Mr Victor Nwokolo, at Boji-Boji Owa, Ika North East Local Government Area.
The Governor who was in company with the Speaker of the State House of Assembly and PDP Governorship Candidate in the state, Chief Sheriff Oborevwori and State Chairman of PDP, Chief Kingsley Esiso, commended Nwokolo for his gesture in giving hope to the hopeless, describing the event as “empowerment programme with a difference”
He said that Nigeria was troubled because people were hungry and out of jobs due to mismanagement of the nation’s economy.

He added that even students were having lots of challenges because their parents could not meet their needs owing to the level of poverty resulting from the ineptitude of the APC-led Federal Government.
Okowa, therefore, urged Nigerians to support the PDP, saying it was the only party with a clear understanding of the nation’s challenges and had a clear solution to rescue the nation.
Earlier, Nwokolo had said that his motive for the empowerment was to restore hope to the hopeless amid rising hunger and poverty in the land.
He commended Governor Okowa for providing leadership and for his efforts in empowering the people through the various entrepreneurial programmes of the state.
