Dr Tony Nwoye understands the economic maxim ” that it’s not the job of the government to create jobs directly but to empower private sector with necessary incentives necessary for job creation” it’s the sole reason why Dr. Tony Nwoye is prepared to partner, and off course anchor his job creation on the private sector. To do this Dr. Tony Nwoye has published plans to create three industrial zones in the state; Nnewi, Onitsha and Awka and will provide infrastructure in roads, electricity, communication, transportation and etc to enable an industrial cluster within this zone.
