The Ebonyi government has launched its stimulus development programme to be a driving force in the human capital development sector.

Mr Uchenna Orji, the state Commissioner for Human Capital Development and Monitoring, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abakaliki.

He noted that the programme was under the state governor’s mentorship scheme.

Orji said that the government has entered into agreement with Park Hill Consulting firm to implement the programme, adding that necessary legislation will be made to sustain it.

“The programme will identify individuals with engineering, technology, business management, Information Communication Technology (ICT) and teaching interests, including those above 50 years of age.

“The successful applicants after being shortlisted, will be assisted by the consultant to develop saleable and bankable proposals for the business of choice.

“The consultant will interface with relevant agencies from the government and private sector for the required funds while the government would be the guarantor for such facilities.

“The successful applicants will, after a two-week intensive training, start businesses of their choices as the government is determined to develop individuals financially aside providing necessary infrastructure.

“The proposed businesses will be established in the state and everyone, including those residing outside the state, can benefit,” he said.  (NAN)
