These are projects that touch on the lives of our people”.
Commending the good conduct of the youths, Governor Amaechi noted that “one of the beautiful things we have done in this State in the last six years is to instil discipline in our youths and to make the youths of this State come to the government to lay their complaints when they are angry, instead of carrying guns or going into the creeks,” praising them for conducting themselves well and maintaining peace.
