Youths in the State have been advised to pursue worthy ventures that could position them for future responsibility.
Clerk of the Kogi State House of Assembly, Alhaji Amoka Ibrahim gave the advice when the Members of Amedari Youth Association paid him a visit at the Assembly Complex Lokoja.
Alhaji Amoka told them that Governor Yahaya Bello was working hard to actualize government’s plan in engaging the teeming youths in viable trades for their economic well being.
He appealed to Members of the Association to exercise patience in their quest to be meaningfully engaged, assuring that soon he would create an empowerment program that would benefit some of its members.
He said contact had already been made with relevant authorities on the reticulation of the Greater Lokoja Water Works to Zango-Daji community and other social amenities for their well being.
