The Speaker urged the youths to key into the CBN entrepreneurship programme for the Southeast, saying it is a sure way of making our State and society private sector driven. He assured the youths that the state government is not relenting in making Abia State have a feel of the Federal Government's amnesty programme, giving the youths hope that they will soon feel the impact of NDDC and ASOPADEC in the state as regards to job creation, and pointed out that the Government is already involving youths in the governance of the state, promising that more would be done.

The Abia number three citizen used the medium to urge the youths to stay away from crime using the unpalatable situation at Abia State University as a reference point while calling on them to embark on advocacy in order to dissuade their colleagues from crime.

Earlier, the President of the group Mr Ebere Davidson said they in the Assembly to felicitate with the Speaker on the able way he has been providing quality leadership in the Assembly, he sued for the involvement of the youths in the governance of Abia, and added that youths in Abia are yet to feel the impact of NDDC and ASOPADEC in the area of employment. He used the medium to invite the Speaker to their Summit slated for next month just as he added that the Abia youth Assembly is not afflicted to any political party.
