We are hopeful that the positive impact this brilliant initiative of the governor will create in the system through economic stimulation and improvement of the lives of the beneficiaries will be enermous.
This laudable programme aimed at enhancing the productive capacities of the beneficiaries, remains one of the numerous remarkable programmes and policies of the Uzodimma led APC administration designed to meet the yearnings and aspirations of our youths.
While we commend the governor for this unprecedented bold step, the party charged the beneficiaries to make good use of the fund given to them.
