By Ephraim Oseji

A Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, chieftain, Chief Sunny Onuesoke, has  slammed politicians  who distribute   money, rice, tricycles, sewing machines, generators and other commodities as means of   empowerment instead of using their offices to stimulate institutions, industries  and investments for the youths to be gainfully employed.

Onuesoke, who made the condemnation while responding to questions from  journalists in Abuja on the growth of unemployment rate in Nigeria, blamed politicians for shelving their main responsibility of attracting industries and investments to their constituencies   for the creation of employment to   rather  distribute rice, tricycles, motorcycles, sewing machines and generator among others as means of   empowerment.

“If for instance there is an industry or investment in a particular community, the people of the community will benefit hence it will provide jobs and other avenues of revenue generation for them. The investment will equally attract other businesses that will act as means of revenue generation for the people,” he said.
