THE BUSINESS IN YOU DAILY: Rebuilding a Devastated Community… Part 2

Dear IYBlog Readers, Good evening and happy weekend! In today’s edition, I am going to share with you another level I have taken the issue of rebuilding the communities and people of Awara Court Area in Imo State.

Recently, I was a special guest at the closing ceremony of a 2 weeks course on managing stock piles and ammunition for store managers in all the security agencies in the zone, organized by the Presidential Committee on Small Arms and Light Weapons.

I was invited to witness the ceremony by Mr. Dickson Orji, the National Coordinator of the Presidential Committee, whose office is in a partnership discussion with the Imo State Government, vis-a-viz my office, State Directorate for Employment and Job Center on how to empower and transform the lives of the ex-agitators and members of those communities that lost their loved ones and their properties.

In my speech, I informed the security officers that Imo State is enjoying a peaceful and serene atmosphere today because of the synergy the Government has created amongst all the security agencies. I encouraged them, especially those selected from Imo State, to maintain the relationship with members of other organizations and to apply the new skills in managing stock piles in securing the lives and properties of Nigerians.

The high point of the meeting was a visit to the Imo State Government to advance the partnership discussion with the Presidential Committee and their partners, who are desirous of supporting the efforts of the government in rehabilitating the ex-agitators and providing them alternative means of livelihoods.

It appears that the promise I made to the youths of Awara Court Area two days ago is gradually becoming a reality. Anyway, I know myself and the God I worship… we don’t make promises that we cannot fulfill.

We are expecting you to join this train in whatever capacity you can. Do you have space to absorb interns from the area? Do you have jobs for young people from the area? Do you have a scholarship package for them? If your answer to any of the above is “yes”, please, call me now on 08038702075 or email: We shall acknowledge all sponsors and partners in this “Save Awara Project”.

To God be all the glory!
