The Imo State Governor, Mr Rochas Okorocha, has urged all aspiring political office holders in the state to endeavour to identify with the grassroots and initiate projects and/or programmes that will touch the lives of people in the grassroots.
The Governor made this call while commissioning the last of the series of the Nneoma Skills Acquisition and Empowerment Centre at Ihitte Uboma Local Government Area of Imo State.
The Governor said every political or elective office has an expiring date and as such, the positive impact made in many people’s lives through positive programmes and policies will be the legacy holders of such offices will be remembered for.
Governor Okorocha further noted that the establishment of the skills acquisition and empowerment centre by the Office of the First Lady is in line with his campaign promise of creating employment, industries and factories in the state.
Chairman of the occasion, Senator Ifeanyi Ararume, commended the APC-led administration in the state for the project, adding that it will go a long way to tackle the issue of unemployment in the state.
He urged the people of the state to support the APC-led administration, at federal and state level, to continue to deliver the dividends of democracy to the people.
The Nneoma Skills Acquisition and Economic Empowerment Centre is meant to give 3 to 6 months free training on vocational skills such as fashion designing, cosmetology, photography, catering, hair dressing and computer training with a certificate affiliated to the Imo State Polytechnic.
