Members of the Nigerian National Union of Unemployed Graduates, (NNUG) Delta state chapter have expressed optimism that the administration of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa will not disappoint the state, especially on job creation and youth empowerment, considering the developmental status of the Governor before now.

The Union who made the statement during their just concluded general meeting of the Union in Asaba noted that all unemployed graduates in the state are looking up to the Governor following their huge support for him during the last election.

Led by the President General Comrade Pastor Paul Avwarote, the union said that prosperity for all Deltans and provision of jobs for the unemployed formed the major part of Governor Okowa’s manifestos as they pledged to continue to support the administration and use the body in ensuring that there is peace and harmony among the teeming youths that constitute the bulk of the unemployed graduates in the state.

The Delta state spokesman of the group, Mr Otuya Ben also used the opportunity to appreciate the effort of their National Patron of the Union, Bishop Nmalagu Greatman, who he said used his good office in seeking the support of all the unemployed graduates in Delta state to support the Governor.

He said that the best means of enhancing peace, good development and eradicating crimes and other vices, was by providing job for the unemployed.

The National Patron also called on all Deltans to continue praying and supporting the Okowa-led administration as there was no doubt that it would bring positive changes to the state.

While advising the Governor on how to reduce unemployment in the state, the legal adviser of the group, Barrister Kingsley Egbon also appealed to the Governor for the need to create a Ministry of Wealth and Employment Creation, that would focus on employment and job creation and to drive the economic agenda of the state.
