Ahead of the 2019 general elections, a presidential aspirant on the platform of Nigeria Democratic Congress Party (NDCP), John A. Edosomwan, has decried the nation’s poor productivity.
He said about 85 per cent productivity level is being lost daily owing to what he described as government’s archaic, bad and poor economic policies.
Edosomwan made the submission yesterday while speaking on Presidential Platform 2019 programme organised by the West African Association of Political Parties (WAAPP) in Abuja.
Decrying the alarming insecurity in the land, he promised to introduce a comprehensive community policing system that gives responsibility to every local in an efficient way to curb crimes.
If given the opportunity, the Edo State-born politician, who stated that his government would introduce a single tax health care system using research institutions to ensure the success of the policy, lamented the disparity in welfare of the masses, which he noted, was injustice that must be stopped.
Chairman of WAAPP, Perry Opara, stated that the nation’s democracy was still undergoing challenges as manifest in sensitive appointments by the presidency.
