Imo state to empower 15,000 youths with N4b – History will be made on Saturday when Imo State Governor Hope Uzodinma will empower 15,000 youths with N4billion.

Each of the youths will receive N250,000 as seed capital to pursue a trade of their choice.

The youths who are drawn from the 27 local government areas of the state have been trained in various vocations.

Commissioner for Information and Strategy Declan Emelumba, in a statement, said the gesture was in fulfilment of the governor’s promise to alleviate poverty and reduce crime in the state.

He said each of the 15,000 beneficiaries will receive his or her alert before departing the venue of the ceremony.

According to Emelumba, apart from providing direct employment to the youths, the empowerment will also make them employers of labour.

He said the government’s shared prosperity agenda encapsulated in the 3RS of rehabilitation, recovery and reconstruction has the youths as a critical component.

According to him, because of the correlation between unemployment and crime, UzodiMma is determined to take many Imo youths out of the streets.

He said the youths who have received training in fashion designing, barbing, hairdresser, phone and electrical repairs, among other skills, would also train their peers.

While urging the beneficiaries to make judicious use of the opportunity provided to them, the commissioner assured them of the readiness of the governor to continue to support the youths in their productive endeavours.
