The Senator representing Abia South Senatorial District, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, has promísed to partner the Agricbusiness Incubation Centre at Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike, for the training and empowerment of youths.

This, he acknowledged, would help create jobs and reduce unemployment.

The former mínórity leader also said that without refocusing the youths in agribusiness and other skill acquisition programmes,  their future in Nigeria would be endangered.

While welcoming the Director of MOUAU Agricbusiness Incubation Centre, Dr Philips Nto, in his National Assembly, Abuja office,  the ranking Senator appealed to youths to embrace skills acquisition, especially training in agribusiness to enhance their future economically.

He described the initiative by MOUAU Vice-Chancellor, Prof Maduebibisi Iwe, to establish the centre as laudable, pledging that he would offer his support for its success.
