Abia State Government has pledged to continue partnering organisations in the State that come up with programmes meant for youth development and harnessing of talents.
The Secretary to the Abia State Government, Barr. Chris Ezem, who made the pledge while interacting with newsmen on Sunday at the final of the 2021 Vision Africa Radio Icons Music Reality Show held at Michael Okpara Auditorium, maintained that Abia is blessed with real talents that can make the State proud.
He commended Vision Africa Radio for creating an avenue to discover young Abians with real talents, stressing that without being present at the event, he wouldn’t have known how blessed the State is to have bundle of talents.
Barr. Ezem said with what the contestants showcased, they have shown that Abia has talents that can go International, stand on their own, admitting that the theme of the 2021 Vision Africa Radio Icons Reality, “Peace in the Nation”, is apt, and coming at the a time when the country needs peace more than ever.
The SSG, advised Vision Africa Radio to, in future outings, encourage the participants to do local songs revolving around the Obewes, noting that this will promote the culture of Ndi Igbo.
