Abia State Governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu has said plans were underway to launch an Education for Employment, E4E programme.
Ikpeazu, who disclosed this while dissolving the state executive council left behind by his predecessor, Theodore Orji, said that the programme would enable 100,000 youths acquire skills for the next four years.
He urged the people to cooperate with the administration by paying their taxes to enable it deliver on its promises.
Ikpeazu assured that the new Abia of his dream would be defined on five time –honoured values of performance, ownership, innovation commitment and integrity, even as there would be zero tolerance for corruption.
He reiterated that the administration would pursue its goal for the state on five key growth pillars, including manufacturing, trade and commerce, agriculture, infrastructure and environment, saying that waste management equipment would be deployed on the streets of Aba for proper waste management.
He said road construction and rehabilitation would remain the major thrust of the 100 days plan.
“A lot of our roads are impassable and we feel the pains and frustration of Abians in this regard. With our lean resources, it is impossible to fix these problems all at once, so it has to be phased. We will begin the simultaneous rehabilitation of 10 major roads in our state and you have our commitment to deliver them to the highest standards possible,” he said.
The Governor also said that to ease the process of doing business in the state the administration has begun harmonisation of taxes, even as he assured that agriculture would be exploited to create employment, ensure food security and grow the economy.
