The Ebonyi State Government, on Monday constituted a 11-man committee to develop a database for the employment of skilled and unskilled youths in the state.

The committee members were drawn from various economic sub-sectors such as artisans, actors and farmers.

Inaugurating the committee, in Abakaliki, the state capital, the Commissioner for Information and State Orientation, Uchenna Orji, who doubles as the acting Commissioner for Human Capital Development and Monitoring, said the creation of the database would help the government to plan for Ebonyi residents.

Orji said, “The database will capture all the employable citizens both indigenes and non-indigenes resident within the 13 local government areas for the purpose of ensuring that they benefited from the empowerment programmes of both state and federal governments.”
