Kogi State government has assured  people of the state of the administration’s commitment to encourage individuals and organisations to establish projects, which have direct bearing on the well-being of the people.

The state’s Deputy Governor, Edward Onoja,  gave the assurance at Inele -Ugoh, in Olamaboro  Local Council, while inspecting some projects executed by a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), Enemona Just Foundation in the community.
  
Onoja, who commended the promoter of the Enemona Just Foundation (EJF),  Gabriel David, for his numerous empowerment and employment opportunities for the people,  said he has written his name in gold across the communities.

 
He stressed that  empowerment programmes targeted at alleviating the sufferings of widows, orphans and the vulnerable, marked him out among his peers through out Kogi East zone.
  
The deputy governor, said the church building, being constructed by the foundation, further underscored the religious harmony, which existed in the state under the present administration.
 
He, therefore, called on youths in the zone to align themselves with people, which have a vision to serve humanity rather than involving in anti-social behaviours.
 
In his remarks,  the promoter of EJF,   Gabriel David, said the foundation is  founded primarily to  care for the vulnerable members of the society, community development and nation building.
 
Our aim is to improve the quality of lives of  the less-privileged women, widows, youths and children in our communities
   
“The 600-capacity church building,  we are  constructing  at Inele-Ugoh would be donated to the United Evangelical Church (UEC) by April to serve  the spiritual needs of people of the community,” he added.
