The Imo State Government through the Office of the Governor on Youth Affairs will officially kick-off a One Week Agro based program tagged "PROJECT 1 YOUTH, 1 FARM” which will see several youths empowered in diverse agro based ventures such as crop production, livestock farming, business development, funding and feasibility studies.
The objective of this initiative is driven by the vision of the 3R Administration led by His Excellency, Dist. Sen. Hope Uzodinma to empower the youths by impacting meaningful skills that would uplift them from the doldrums of economic hardship whilst also making them employers of labor.
This human capital development project pioneered by the Office of the Governor, Youth Affairs is in tandem with the need for Imo Youths to create sustainable wealth by exploring the economic opportunities hidden in the agro sector.
And as part of this efforts, we would be engaging the services of renowned professionals who have been tested, proven and trusted across various agricultural lines to assist in grooming the over 500 participants in order to ensure maximum impact.
Having stated thus, on behalf of the Executive Governor of Imo State, Dist. Sen. Hope Uzodinma, I formally flag off the initiative “PROJECT 1 YOUTH, 1 FARM”
Long live the Federal Republic of Nigeria,
Long live Imo State!
Signed: Hon Eric Uwakwe SA to the Governor of Imo State on Youth Affairs.
