BY PRINCELY ONYENWE, IMO
The wisdom and vision of His Excellency in creating the Ministry of Entrepreneurship and Skills Acquisition upon resumption of office, transcends beyond an increase in available space for appointment, into expansion of Imo State economy through the Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs).
This became glaring when the Ministry began series of trainings for the youth, who enrolled for the various skills acquisition programs, rolled out by the Shared Prosperity administration of His Excellency the Distinguished Senator Hope Uzodimma.
To cap it all, His Excellency launched the Imo State Youths Empowerment Program where in 15,000 trained youths have been empowered with N250,000 each today, 26th June, 2021 as startup grant to their various businesses.
This, totalling N4b, would be injected into the Imo State economy at various sectors simultaneously by the beneficiaries of this program. Imo State economy is so diverse and fertile that with well trained entrepreneurs, the injection of N4b would transform the economy beyond projection, in geometric proportions.
This would introduce an influx of investors and economic transactions capable of transforming the state economy with a GDP growth in competition with comity of performing economies.
With the N4b disbursed to beneficiaries, Imo Economy is gearing towards an upward growth beyond imagination.
Imo can move on with this recent tempo to empower the youths and make them self reliant.
