#10percent4youths is a campaign that seeks to address the problem of youth unemployment in the Niger Delta. Akwa Ibom state has heeded the call of the youths and there is a Bill in the House of Assembly which seeks to establish the Akwa Ibom Youth Development Fund (AKYDF) to provide funding for youth empowerment. Once established, youths will be able to get;

  • Money that will help youths start or expand their businesses and teach them business management skills.
  • Youths that require professional certification to get their dream jobs will get money to pay for it.
  • It will fund reorientation programs that will change the mindset of youths and motivate them to be job creators
  • The money will especially support youths who want to go into agriculture and technology businesses so our state will not depend  on oil money alone.
  • The Fund will also partner with private sector to provide at least 6 months work experience for youths who will receive monthly       allowances to enable them gain work experience and increase their chances of securing paid jobs
