Daily Trust - - CITY NEWS - By Ab­bas Ji­moh

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.”
