“Aside lending support to the completion agenda of Udom Emmanuel-led administration, one of my greatest joy as Speaker is the commencement of the RHAB–YESS Programme and the impact it is creating in the lives of our youths. The programme support youths and SMEs every month with N500,000. It may look small but it is impactful. If elected officials of government can adopt what we are doing with RHAB-YESS in Akwa Ibom State, the rate of unemployment and insecurity in Nigeria will be greatly curtailed. Our youths will have a reason to live because we provided them with a shoulder to lean on to get a life and future.”, he said.
