Economic Empowerment

The lack of economic opportunities is one of the drivers of crime and other social issues. Everyone
deserves the opportunity to have a decent job or the enablement to pursue a trade or business.

  • Jobs! Jobs! Jobs! With AkinọmọAkin as your representative, I will fight to attract jobs for constituents. With our jobs seekers’ database, we will be ready to respond to openings in both government agencies and private organisations run by accomplished constituents and match them with qualified job seekers. We will also work with an advisory committee of senior civil servants at the federal and state levels who are indigenes of the constituency, to identify Ministries/Departments/Agencies where the Federal Character principle has not favoured our constituency, and lobby to redress this by securing jobs for our youth.


  • Small Business Grants: We will provide small business grants for as many entrepreneurs,
    artisans, and traders as possible in the constituency, to empower them to earn a decent living
    in dignity.


  • Equipment: We will work with the local branches of unions such as transport unions,
    Performing Musicians Association of Nigeria (PMAN), and other such unions to determine
    their trade equipment needs, and empower as many members as possible.


  • Local Content: We will ensure all constituency projects utilise local contractors and suppliers as much as possible.


  • Farmers’ Support Programmes: We will create avenues to support our farmers to be more
    productive and encourage value addition within the constituency.


  • Industries:We will work with stakeholders in the constituency to establish employment
    generating industries.


  • Creative Industries: We will incentivise producers and content creators to come and use
    locations and talent within the constituency, in order to create jobs and spotlight our
    communities in the creative industry.
