Okocha mobilises support for Soludo

Nigeria’s celebrated former football star, Jay Jay Okocha, is set to mobilise Nigerian youth for the gubernatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Professor Chukwuma Soludo in this weekend election in Anambra State because of Soludo’s pledge to create between 300, 000 and 500, 000 jobs if elected governor.

Okocha made the pledge in Lagos, yesterday in a meeting organised by Anambra indigenes in honour of the erstwhile Central Bank Governor, Chukwuma Soludo.

The erstwhile national football captain said even though he was not involved in partisan politics, he could not afford to be indifferent to a candidate “who has drawn up a comprehensive programme of engaging so many youths productively”.

He noted that the absence of employment opportunities has “given rise to vices like cultism, prostitution, armed robbery, and kidnapping which involve a large number of the nation’s leaders of tomorrow”.
