The Federal Government of Nigeria has recently formed a partnership with the Ebonyi state government to promote the implementation of its youth employment scheme.

Recently, the governor of Ebonyi state, David Umahi reassured the youths of his commitment to the cause while speaking with the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Job Creation and Youth Employment, Mr. Afolabi Imoukhuede who paid him a courtesy visit with the N-Power Monitoring and Evaluation team.

Concerning the unemployed youths, the governor said: “We think that the reason there are pockets of agitation in the nation today is that there are still young men and women out there who have not been engaged. Once their minds are engaged and taken care of, agitations will cease in our land and negotiations and dialogue will take us where we need to be as a people.”

“The programme itself is viewed by us as identifying the road map to success which if properly harnessed will give greater glory to Nigeria as a nation. If you successfully take off all the youth and women from the streets of Nigeria, all these agitations will fizzle out and Nigeria will praise you for doing that.’’

This employment implementation is set to take the Ebonyi state development to a new phase.
