Club empowers 72 FCT residents to promote peace
The Citizens Club of Nigeria (CCN) yesterday in Abuja began series of empowerment activities for 72 residents in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) as part measures to reduce poverty and promote peace in the territory.
The 72 residents, who were inducted yesterday in Abuja, were drawn across the six Area Councils of the territory.
Guardian of the CCN and pioneer Secretary of the Subsidy Reinvestment and Empowerment Programme (SURE-P), Nze Akachukwu Nwankpo, told the newly inductees as Champions of the club that they were selected across without any bias to promote peace in their immediate community and are expected to go back to their local areas to replicate what they have learnt.
FCT Coordinator of the CCN, Barrister Dozie Obele, said the induction is historical, adding “This is the first time Nigerians are gathering under the flag of citizenship with the aim of empowering themselves and the society in the interest of all citizens.”
