COMMISSIONER for Economic Planning, Budget and Development Partners, Chiamaka Nnake, recently met with the Labour-Intensive Public Workfare (LIPW) enrollees from Onitsha, Nnewi, Awka, and Ekwulobia cities, together with some management and technical staff members of Anambra State Community and Social Development Agency (ANCSDA) and Anambra State Waste Management Agency (ASWAMA) with the aim of handing over the LIPW enrollees to ASWAMA for field monitoring and supervision of their works going forward.
The interactive meeting took place at separate venues across the four cities recently, under the Anambra COVID-19 Action Recovery and Economic Stimulus (AN-CARES) Programme being implemented in the state by ANCSDA.
Addressing the enrollees, the commissioner informed that the LIPW is a programme intended to provide temporary employment opportunities in the social sector to address the emergency constraints of loss of labour-income among poor and vulnerable households as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Mrs Nnake further informed the enrollees that ASWAMA is an agency of the state government saddled with task of cleaning the environment and ensuring general sanitation in the state, and as such, the state government, through the meeting is formally handing over the LIPW enrollees work at the sites to ASWAMA team, who will now be supervising and reporting to government before stipends are paid by ANCSDA to enrollees for the work done.
In his remarks, the GM/CEO, Anambra State Community and Social Development Agency (ANCSDA), Mr Chudi Mojekwu, represented by Head, LIPW ANCSDA, Mr Chimezie Ibedu, thanked the enrollees for their patience and presence at the meeting within a short notice. He encouraged them to be hardworking, committed and keep to the advice and instructions of ASWAMA in the discharge of their assigned works under LIPW.
On his part, the MD ASWAMA, Mr Mike Ozoemenam, informed the enrollees that Mr Governor is very much interested in the LIPW and its success which would translate to a cleaner environment in the state.
