Popular Nigerian singer, Peter Okoye has taken a swipe at the Gov of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma for announcing that he would help 4,000 indigenes of Imo State secure jobs in Europe and Canada by December 2023.
Uzodinma gave this pledge during a campaign event ahead of the November 11 governorship election in the South Eastern State of Nigeria.
He even went as far as saying that he would pay for their flight ticket once they secure the jobs.
In his words;
‘’I have gone further to negotiate with the European Union government and Canadian government. They are sending us special areas of skill which our youths will also learn and by December this year, 4000 Imo youths will be employed in Europe.' Once the employment letter drops, the governor will pay for your air ticket." he said as the crowd cheered him
Reacting via his Instastories, Peter Okoye described the comment by the governor as ‘’ridiculous.''
He stated that it is a shame for a governor who is supposed to create an enabling environment and job opportunities for his people to make such promises.
