Outrage as Imo state governor empowers unemployed youth with rabbits

Nigerians on social media have slammed the sitting governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma, for giving off rabbits as empowerment scheme for the youths in the state.

Musbizu gathered that the governor, Uzodinma Hope on Friday, 27th November 2020 commissioned Rabbits as Youth Empowerment Scheme in Owerri.

Speaking at the flag-off ceremony on Friday, Mr Uzodinma stated that he is determined to involve youths in productive ventures like agriculture that will guarantee their meaningful employment.

He said the program was going to guarantee food security, empower youths and reduce restiveness amongst other benefits.

However, this gesture did not sit well with Nigerians on social media who outrightly condemned the shallow-minded scheme.
