Anambra allots N2.5b for youth devp
ABOUT N2.5 billion has been mapped out for youth development in Anambra State.
Commissioner for Culture, Tourism and Entertainment, Mr. Don Onyenji, disclosed this in Awka during the maiden edition of Anambra Entertainers Meet and Greet, yesterday.
Explaining this as part of government’s commitment to recalibrating entertainment and showbiz industry by giving it a headstart in the state, Onyenji said the event was to profile all entertainment practitioners from dancers, models, comedians, film makers, influencers and hypemen by mentoring and nurturing home-based talents, especially youth to lucratively realise their full potentials.
“We need to harness the talents of our youths and engage them meaningfully to be able to stand economically and otherwise. Anambra has huge potentials amongst its youths. These are untapped and we have resolved to create opportunities for them to advance positively and get the needed support to thrive in their passion. The economy belongs to the youths, and explained that Mr. Governor has great value for youth development,” he said.
In his address to the participants, Speaker of Anambra State House of Assembly, Mr. Uchenna Okafor, assured the participants of the legislature’s readiness to partner Gov. Chukwuma Soludo’s efforts to integrate Anambra’s youth in the socio-economic development roadmap of the administration.
