Former Governor of Enugu State and Senator representing Enugu East Senatorial District, Senator Chimaroke Nnamani has embarked on training , skill acquisition and poverty alleviation programmes for his constituents .

The programme is targeted at women and youths to lift them from poverty.

 Another batch of 80 women and youths were also trained on bio-entrepreneurship and capacity building with special breed of paw-paw seeds, plantain roots, fish fingerlings, bags of feed and water tanks for fish farming and start up capital .

In addition, no fewer than 400 applicants have been verified and captured for the N30,000 survival  fund programme for artisans in Enugu East Senatorial District.
