Honorable UKO NKOLE, member representing Arochukwu/Ohafia Federal Constituency has continuously proven to be a man that puts youth development as one of the focal points of his administration.
Recall, record has it that between 2015 to date, Hon NKOLE has secured jobs for over 60 youths from his constituency both in the Federal ministries, parastatals and in all branches of Nigeria forces, both military and paramilitary. This is a record that has not be attained by any Political office holder in decades.
The Nomination of IBEM ONWUKA IBEM for an esteemed National Assignment is a show that every good labour attracts good rewards, especially when you do your work with all diligence, commitment and dedication. IBEM has probed to be a worthy and committed follower in delivering his duties. That is why today he has been nominated as an Independent Monitor on National Social Investment Programme- N-SIP by Hon. Uko Nkole with another brother from Arochukwu, Mr. Chukwu Jonas as N-SIP Independent Monitors.

ABOUT THE PROGRAMME:
National Social Investment Programme
The Federal Government of Nigeria established the National Social Investments Programmes (NSIP) in 2016, to tackle poverty and hunger across the country.
The suite of programmes under the NSIP focuses on ensuring a more equitable distribution of resources to vulnerable populations, including children, youth and women.
Since 2016, these programmes combined have supported more than 4 million beneficiaries country-wide through a fair and transparent process supported by the Ministry of Budget and National Planning (MBNP) and other notable MDAs with aligned goals.
The Programmes are as follows:
1.) The N-power programme is designed to assist young Nigerians between the ages of 18 to 35 to acquire and develop life-long skills for becoming change makers in their communities and players in the domestic and global market.
2.) The Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) programme directly supports those within the lowest poverty bracket by improving nutrition, increasing household consumption and supporting the development of human capital through cash benefits to various categories of the poor and vulnerable.
3.) Government Enterprise and Empowerment Programme (GEEP) is a micro-lending intervention that targets traders, artisans, enterprising youth, farmers and women in particular, by providing loans between 10,000 and 100,000 at no monthly cost to beneficiaries
4.) The Home Grown School Feeding Programme (HGSF) aims to deliver school feeding to young children with a specific focus on increasing school enrollment, reducing the incidence of malnutrition (especially among the poor and those ordinarily unable to eat a meal-a-day), empowering community women as cooks and by supporting small farmers that help stimulate economic growth.
This is another good point so far scored by Honourable NKOLE and I must confess it is a lesson to all the youths.
There’s always better and more enduring reward for dedication and commitment to every duty because each assignment in life is a test for higher callings.
CONGRATULATIONS IBEM & JONAS
