Group outlines measures to reduce unemployment
Worried by the rate of unemployment in the country, the founder of Akuluouno –Think Home Forum, Elder Okwudili Ijezie, has called for more investments in human capacity and agriculture.
He said this would increase the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and reduce the crime rate in the country.
He noted that there was a need to embark on a massive agricultural revolution to curb
unemployment and attain food security.
He also mentioned the need to take development to the southeast. He urged Ndigbo, especially those in the Diaspora, to ‘think home’ in their investment decisions as part of the Igbo development agenda.
According to Ijezie, the purpose of the forum is to build the required consciousness among Igbos on the need to inculcate communal culture and mobilise all Igbo professionals, academia, businessmen, and women at home and in diaspora towards the advancement of their zone.
He also noted that the Forum would organise free annual lecture series to sensitise the
people and to brainstorm on the Akuluouno Philosophy.
