- Human Capacity Building:
The wealth of Abi lies in its grossly untapped human resources. To this end, he will work to ensure that our people harness their God-given potentials to be the best they can be in all spheres of human endeavours, he will continue to ensure job creation and wealth destribution through skills acquisition, and vocational training among the vulnerable groups in Abi.
Education is the bedrock of any society, the key component of my education development agenda is to ensure that we build a qualitative and conducive learning environment for our pupils, and students. Barr. Adaga will place more emphasis on vocational and technical training across our public schools.
To unlock the full agricultural potentials of Abi by adequately equiping our people
with the best of modern agricultural knowledge and global best practice in a bid to empowering them to power our economy through active involvement in the agro-allied chain, he will also thrive to partner with investors to explore other agricultural areas like aquatics, and livestock farming as well as food processing.
Of utmost concern to all the good people of Abi is the worsening security situation in Abi, if I’m eventually elected, on assumption of office I will ensure the end of communal clashes and other criminal activities bedeviling us through active collaborations with our security agencies, and other relevant stakeholders.
These 4 cardinal agenda embody a whole lot you could think of but it wil be much of a promise fullfilled with the active cooperation of the people.
Finally, what is right doing should be done without bias or préjudice. The standard is raised. Let’s stand by it.Together we Can.
