Mr. Jerigba Jerigba, Chairman, Subsidy Re-investment and Empowerment Program in Cross River, has said that the agency has trained no fewer than 75 supervisors under its Community Service Scheme.
Jerigba made this disclosure in Calabar during a workshop organized for them in Southern Cross River on ‘Monitoring and Evaluation of CSS projects’ in the state.
He said that the significance of the program was to bring about accountability.
According to him, SURE-P was initiated to alleviate the suffering of the teeming population, especially the unemployed women, youths and vulnerable groups in the society.
“In the first ramp-up of the program, 3,000 beneficiaries were recruited from each state and the FCT.
“The enormity of the workforce therefore, requires effective management in order to achieve the set goal, thereby making this training a necessity.
“The second ramp-up of the beneficiaries will soon commence and it is imperative for you supervisors to pay attention to the training,” he said.
Also speaking, the state Vice Chairman, Mr Edem Duke, said that the program was targeted at youths, to make them self- reliant.
Duke urged the participants to take the training seriously in order to achieve their set goals.
One of the participants, Mr Clement Bassey, who was in charge of Sanitation and Environmental Maintenance, said that the training would help him to discharge his duties effectively as a supervisor.
The News Agency of Nigeria gathered that the CSS program would also be replicated in the northern and central districts of the state.
