In a way to encourage career building and prevent dreams from dying among youths, younger brother of Akwa Ibom State Governor, Mr. Nsentip Akpabio with the supports of the Governorâ€™s wife, Mrs. Ekaette Unoma Akpabio, and Mr. Emem Akpabio, recently organised a programme on career building where over 1000 youths in Akwa Ibom had received training on career building and youth development as this yearâ€™sÂ Christmas bonus for them.
The programme which took place at Independent High School, Ukana, Essien Udim Local Government of the State with a slogan, â€œI will never let you go unless you bless me,â€ offered free accommodation, feeding, and free medical test by Dr. D.D. Ukpong of the University Teaching Hospital, Uyo.
Seasoned lecturers from the state university added more light to the programme when they took the youths on career building and development.
Speaking on the objective of the camping, Mr Nsentip said, this programme tended to bring unity among youths in the state.
In addition he said, â€œI have instituted an awarded scholarship to over 3 students in the 3 senatorial district in Akwa Ibom state to complement the effort of his Excellency in the area of free and compulsory education of the state government. Â
Mr. Nsentip advised the youths during the programme to shun youth restivenessÂ like armed robbery, prostitution, examination malpractice, drug abuse, thuggery, and sexual abuses. And use the advantage of free education in the state to shape their future, and never allow politicians to use them to foment troubles during elections.
