The SkillUpImo Project of Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodimma, will on November 4, 2023, admit 40,000 Imo youths as the Cohort Three kicks off.

At the event, which will hold at Dan Anyiam Stadium, Owerri, participants are expected to go home with startup kits.

Cohort 1 of the project, which is under the state’s Ministry of Digital Economy and E-Governance, trained, graduated and equipped 5,000 youths, while Cohort 2 has 15,000.

Aside from the previous five trophies won across the country, technology-driven empowerment scheme was also nominated as the ‘Most Digitally-Compliant State’ award due to the governor’s “excellent strides in the Information Technology industry.”

In July, this year, courtesy of SkillUpImo, the governor and his Commissioner for Digital Economy and E-Governance, Dr. Chimezie Amadi, won two awards at the Titans of Tech event in Lagos. Earlier this October, the ministry won the ‘Best State MDA in ICT Human Capacity Development’ and the commissioner bagged the ‘Distinguished GOVtech Trailblazers’ award at the inaugural edition of Nigeria Govtech Public Service Awards.
