Written by City Radio on January 12, 2023
In a bid to drive the one youth two skills initiative of Governor Chukwuma Soludo-led administration to the grassroot, the Anambra State Government, through the Ministry of Youth Development, has launched “Close the gap Initiative”.
Hundreds of youths from Anambra North Senatorial District, participated in the sensitization event at Onitsha to drive home the initiative.
Speaking at the event , the Commissioner for Youth Development, Mr. Patrick Agha-Mba, who applauded the governor for his amazing agenda for Anambra youths, explained that the initiative is one of the governor’s efforts in solving youth restiveness and meeting his vision of raising one thousand youth millionaires annually.
While stressing that the project is community based where community stakeholders are deeply involved, Mr. Agha-Mba, said that stepping down the project to the grassroots will close the gaps between government and the people.
He further pointed out that they are still creating more stakeholder network to avoid leaving any youth behind in the scheme of things as the first batch of the project will soon be launched.
