As part its of sustainable livelihood palliative to cushion the effect of economic difficulties occasioned by the global pandemic, COVID 19, Cross River state government is poised to employ thousands of youths on some sectors of the state’s economy.

A statement released in Calabar Tuesday by Secretary to the state government, Barrister Tina Banku Agbor listed the sectors as Health, Security, Environment and Agriculture.

The government said it will not allow Cross River youths suffer the unsavoury economic consequences of the pandemic.

“In view of the COVID-19 lockdown and its attendant consequences on livelihoods leading to job losses, daily income difficulties, waste of youthful energy, and in order to reduce public anxiety, youth restiveness and lower social tension, the Cross River State Government is set to recruit young men and women from the ages of 18-35, with the exception of those in the health sector, on a flat monthly salary of #30,000”, the statement said.

The Agricultural sector alone is employing 5,000 youths.
