Anambra return your money and invest home

By Okechukwu Onuegbu

The traditional ruler and community leader of Igboukwu town Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State, His Royal Highness, Igwe, Dr. Barr. Martin N. Ezeh has called on the citizens of Anambra State who stocked money in the foreign banks  to repatriate their money home to Anambra State to encourage the establishment  of industries that would create employment to the teeming unemployed youths of the state as the government cannot give employments to all the unemployed youths roaming the street of the state.
He disclosed this to in his palace yesterday while commending the steps so far taken by the governor, Chief Willie Obiano in tackling the security situation in the state and being prepared to launch Anambra State to a model state with his planned four pillars of development which include the aggressive mechanized agriculture, oil and gas, trade/commerce and industrialization.
Igwe Martin Eze called on Ndi Anambra to support fully the administration of the new governor of the state as he was confident that Chief Obiano would perform more than his predecessor, Chief Peter Obi (CON). He stated, that if agriculture is mechanized, the state would be the food basket of the nation as Anambra State has massive area of land for cultivation of agricultural produce but regretted that there are no good roads leading to the farm lands. He also appealed for direct financial grants to the farmers.
He further stated, that agriculture is most money yielding job in the world apart from petroleum industry. Igwe Eze said, that the youths and unemployed would take to agriculture if government provides incentives particularly the loans, fertilizer, etc. The traditional ruler appealed to youths to go back to agriculture as it is the only profession that would enrich one within one year of serious engagement, he assured.
On youths taking to crimes, Igwe Ezeh condemned the evil tendency and called on the vigilante and other security agencies to help the government to fish out the criminals in their hide outs in the communities. He opined that ‘Remanding Homes’ should be established in the state where some of these criminals and hoodlums should be rehabilitated, trained and equipped for better services to themselves and the society. He advised the youths, to “be determined to be what you wish yourself”.
The Igboukwu monarch appealed to the government to send more security personnel to Igboukwu town because of the growing commercial activities going on, as the ancient town has become metropolitan in nature.59-1
