Abia State Govt to Establish Tuition-Free Training Schools

Abia State Govt to Establish Tuition-Free Training Schools

by Victor Ndubuisi

Across the three senatorial zones of Abia State, the government has announced plans to construct tuition-free schools as a means of addressing the shortage of skilled workers and encouraging self-reliance.

These institutions will provide instruction in masonry, painting, tiling, solar power installation and maintenance, and point of purchase (PoP). The initiative’s goal, according to Commissioner for Information and Culture Prince Okey Kanu, is to provide residents with basic skills so that fewer craftsmen from other areas are imported.

Kanu said, “For quite some time, Abia has been lacking artisans,” underscoring the government’s dedication to developing a skilled labour force inside Abia State. Therefore, the state administration seeks to address the state’s skilled labour deficit. Furthermore, graduates of these courses will receive financial empowerment to kickstart their careers.

Furthermore, at a recent executive council meeting presided over by Governor Alex Otti, updates on a number of government programmes were given. The start of the gas supply to the Geometric Power Plant in Aba, which started commissioning preparations, is one noteworthy event. The plant gets its gas supply from Owazza, which is an important step in improving the state’s electricity infrastructure.


In response to complaints about traffic infractions, especially cars that drive against the flow of traffic, the government reaffirmed its commitment to enforcing road rules. The government’s determination to stop such impunity was reaffirmed by the Commissioner for Information and Culture, who emphasised the gravity of the offence by referring to it as “serious indiscipline.” A task force will be formed in order to properly handle traffic infractions.

When it comes to environmental protection, the government never stops looking into pollution-related incidents. Philemon Asonye Ogbonna revealed that investigations into the pollution of the Aro Ajatakiri stream are still underway, with an emphasis on the way businesses in Umuahia dispose of their garbage. He reaffirmed the government’s commitment to protecting environmental integrity by assuring the public that results will be released swiftly.

The state government made its position on alleged federal initiatives clear in the middle of these developments. Commissioner Kanu said, “I am not aware of any such issue,” in response to questions about the Federal Government’s distribution of freed grains. This claim emphasises how important it is to be clear and double-check any outside activities that have an impact on the state.

The diverse strategy used by the Abia State government to solve social issues shows a dedication to all-encompassing development and governance. The administration places a high priority on skill development, infrastructure improvement, traffic discipline, and environmental protection in order to promote long-term growth and prosperity in the state.
