The APGA candidate for Aba central state constituency Hon. Mathew Okorie has unveilled his plans on youth empowerment in Aba central. He stated that the major reason why he joined politics was to bring dividend of democracy to his people. He faulted those politicians who during election make series of promises which will never see the light of the day when elected. he further added that he will empower the youth both male and female in both Beginners and professional skill acquisition in Wiring and solar panel installation, Auto mechanic, Tailoring, Computer system programming etc, to the full extend of the skills.
His statement reads: ” Nowadays, politicians during election season do give uneccessary fake promises to our youths and women on how they are going to transform their lives if voted for and at the end, they will fail by not just upholding their promises but also fail to deliver the dividend of democracy to their citizens. I assured you that in my own case, it will not be promises as usual because my derive to go into politics was because we are tired of failed leadership and representatives. It is time to right the wrong and chang the old narrative of representative. This time, The youths both (Male and Female), cutting across the eight political wards in Aba central State constituency will be massively engage on free skill acquisition training programmes.
The training that we are going to engage them on would be lucrative and of high income pedigree of interest to the youths.
This type of skill empowerment scheme should be done up to the professional training level, so as to achieve the best result which will not only help them succeed in life but will also ensure the safety of their generations to come
Our empowerment scheme program is called Ogwosouth Empowerment Skill Acquisition program and will only focus on skills.
These types of empowerment scheme has been drafted into two parts, Beginners Skill acquisition and Professional Skill acquisition
BEGINNERS SKILL ACQUISITION.
This level of skill acquisition shall comprise those who has no initial or formal skill on a certain program. In these way, they will be trained by professionals to the full extend of the program. Tertiary and secondary school graduates who want to learn skill to stand a chance of employment can enroll in the Beginners level.

This shall comprise of those that already have a skill but wants to upgrade them. As Professionalism in any skill pays more in cooperate world. We will make sure that Aba central attain massively to such level.
The empowerment scheme support varries and depends on the nature of the trade we are training the person on.
This program has been structured in a way that we will go into partnership with some of our partners in those areas that we want to train people in order to cut cost and also be achievable.
Let me also inform you that we are already in consultations with some of the people that wants to partner with us on this course, so we are not waiting to be voted in before we start to plan on this ..no no no.
We are tired of the mode of empowerment that our politicians offer which deprive our youth Productiveness and usefulness in the society.
