Ten youths from Benue State are to be recruited into the United Nations Volunteers Programme.
This is according to Governor Samuel Ortom, adding that the selected youths will be enrolled into the mainstream of the UN system after the volunteer programme.
Governor Ortom disclosed this in Makurdi when he received a delegation from the UN Volunteers Programme led by the Deputy Regional Manager of the programme, Paul Manye.
While pledging the cooperation of the Benue State government to the success of the UN Volunteers Programme in the state, the Governor said the integration of the youths would boost their morale.
Deputy Regional Manager, United Nations Volunteers Programme, Paul Manye, earlier stated that the visit was to “discuss a partnership with government to see how they could create opportunities for Benue youths.”
