The state governor, Mr Ayo Fayose gave the indication on Friday at a meeting with all head teachers of primary schools in the state.

According to him, the ages of the benefiting youths shall be between 17-20 years, while 50 of them will be randomly selected from each of the 177 wards in the state without political consideration.

He explained that his decision to introduce the said empowerment for that category of youths was to alleviate the burden of sponsorship placed by the current economic recession on their parents, most of who he said are teachers.

The governor declared that more support programmes such as provision of conducive environment in schools, employment of more teachers, provision of needed instructional materials as well as training and retraining were in the offing.
