Raila Odinga to revive BBI aspects, if elected President

ODM leader Raila Odinga intends to revive some components of the BBI if elected president in 2021.

Speaking in West Pokot, the leader declared to revisit the matter which stands before the supreme court.

Among the Proposals Raila intends to revive include, allocation of 35% of national revenues to counties. Additionally, enhancement of the equalization fund and provision of cheap loans to small and medium-sized enterprises. Moreover, implementation of a 7-year tax holiday for youth businesses.

The former Prime minister insists the BBI is a solution to the country’s problems. He now assures Kenyans that more funds will be available once the BBI returns.

It remains unclear whether Raila will lobby the creation of 70 extra constituencies were he to win the statehouse bid.

Besides cleaning up the mess in the agricultural sector, the former premier promises a subsidy of farm inputs from his administration.

West Pokot governor John Lonyangapuo, who leads the newly formed Kenya Union Party pledges to publicize the county’s proposals.

Furthermore, senate majority leader Samuel Phogisio asks the One Kenya Alliance to rally behind Raila Odinga.

In his trip, governor John Lonyangapuo, Kakamega governor Wycliffe Oparanya, Alex Tolgos of Elgeyo Marakwet and MPs: Junet Mohamed (Suna East), David Pkosing (Pokot South), nominated MP Muthama (Lamu West), Senator Samuel Poghisio and former Tiati MP Asman Kamama were present.
