Ebonyi begins data capturing of IPOB members


Ebonyi State government has commenced the data capturing and registration of Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) members from the state.

The state Commissioner for Economic Empowerment and Job Creation, Uchenna Orji, disclosed this in Abakaliki.

He said the exercise is going on simultaneously in the 13 local government areas of the state.

According to him, the present administration has done a lot in the area of youth empowerment.

He said the initiative by the state government apart from making the IPOB members economically independent, would also help to reduce social vices and other forms of criminality currently plaguing the society.

The commissioner, who said the state government had extended its empowerment schemes to Ebonyi youths in other states of the federation, added that over 3,000 youths had been empowered in the state.

“These IPOB youths are being registered in the Department of Education and Social Welfare in the LGAs. After their capturing, the state government will create a programme to train them in their chosen career,” Orji said.
