Makurdi — The National Orientation Agency (NOA) has indicated interest to partner Benue women on its newly launched acquisition scheme which provides platform to harness skills and engage talents for collective development.
Director-General of NOA, Mike Omeri, said the scheme christened Citizens Responsibility Volunteer Scheme (CRVS) would harness the skills and energies of young women and men for the benefit of their communities.
Omeri, who made the disclosure in Makurdi at the sixth edition of "Celebrate the Benue Woman", also called on the governor's wife, Mrs. Yemisi Suswam, to invest in the programme for the development of the younger generation.
According to him, the initiative is meant to expose young people to the gains of farming, especially the mechanized farming, which would involve participants to stay within a regimented environment for a period of time.
He said the experiences gained from such process would help to develop the society positively by way of encouraging community efforts and individual contributions.
