Rivers State Government Commends Opm Empowerment Scheme


 

 

Rivers State Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike says his administration will continue to partner organisations that are committed to youth empowerment.
Wike spoke while commissioning the new site of the Nyesom Wike  Skill Acquisition Centre built by the Omega Power Ministries  OPM, located at Aluu in Ikwerre Local Government Area.
Represented by the Chief of Staff to the Governor, Emeka Woke, Gov. Wike said that efficient social services and critical infrastructure were being provided by the government for the people.
Such efforts, he said,  have also included the creation of opportunities for youths to acquire new skills and become economically self reliant.
The governor commended OPM for deliberately rehabilitating street urchins and making them useful citizens.
"We attach importance to human capital development and what you are doing is complementing government's efforts. We have no option than to partner with your ministry because we know you are ready to serve mankind.
"We will identify with you always. Let me also acknowledge your support to government during this COVID-19 period," he said. 
The General Overseer, GO, of Omega Power Ministries , Apostle Chibuzor Chinyere said the Skill Acquisition Centre established seven years ago had provided skills to 500 repentant youths who were involved in armed robbery, militancy and commercial sex .
He pledged that OPM would continue to complement government's effort  towards ridding the streets of criminals, and providing idle youths with useful skills for a better life.
