It was im deed a intellectual outing and interesting evening with Engr Johnbosco Onunkwo at the Sidelines of the National Assembly when he paid a courtesy visit to the Senate President, Senator Ahmed Lawan with the Leadership of Ohaneze Ndi Igbo. Speaking to a cross section(s) of Press in Abuja, Engr. Johnbosco Onunkwo, a Governorship Aspirant, said the future of Anambra state is with the youths and that the younger generation and youths are the pillar of Anambra state.

Engr Johnbosco Onunkwo called on youths to shun being used as tools of violence by undesirable elements who want to destroy their dreams and damage our dearly beloved state for their own selfish means interest. He maintained that 2021 Election in the State is all about the youths and their future.

He said the gap between the rich and poor was the defining challenge of our time. He claimed the standard of living is sky rocketing due to inflation and abuse of Local Government funds in the State.

In addition, Lack of robust infrastructure such of good roads, telecommunications, power, and Information Technology facilities have made it hard for Youths to prosper.

Therefore, as Infrastructure is key to building a society that can overcome poverty in a sustainable manner.
Engr. Johnbosco Onunkwo vowed to tackle poverty and inequality within the communities. He promised to work with Federal Government of Nigeria, NGO's and other Charity Organisations to give good people of the state a chance to get quality Infrastructure facilities and escape a life of poverty.

According to Umuchu born Engineer, "When you help others you help yourself. He says the bond he has with the state is like the bond between mother and her child which cannot be separated. He said is committed to supporting hardworking Anambra people. He promised to help the younger generation to fulfil their potential to become leaders of tomorrow.

Engr Onunkeo told the group of people that he sees philanthropy and politics as windows of opportunity to give back to the community the lost hope and improve the standard of living of the people. He then called on the people of the state and the younger generation to choose the democratic and progressive path to build the state together and shun violence as it will destroy the state and lead to set back.

Engr. Onunkwo promised to boost the economy by creating 100000 professional and business services jobs in all the 21 local government council in Anambra State.
He promised to set up a committee that will look into the issue of infrastructural development in Anambra State and provide a lasting solution to this problem in order to bring prosperity to the Anambra State citizens.

He also spoke on how he will equip young people with the skills such as IT apprenticeship, business entrepreneurship needs to succeed in the global marketplace. The project initiative is aimed at plugging the gap between skilled and unskilled people which would be of great benefit to the whole community.

Engr Onunkwo also maintained that the way to go if jobs are to be massively created is agriculture. We have numerous examples to copy from and improve upon. Israel, Holland and Japan are clear examples that come to mind. Mechanised farming is a non-negotiable requirement for successful government intervention in agriculture. This I must make sure it worked. Israel has been able to invent new techniques for irrigation at low cost. It can be adopted and adapted for local use.
