Council workers in the North West Region have been tasked to select 2500 vulnerable youths along the over 262 kilometre stretch of the Ring Road and train for future jobs in the ring road construction project.
During a workshop in Bamenda, labour stakeholders in the North West were certain that the new employment scheme targeting youths to work on the ring road project will see thousands of youths pick up the pieces of their lives, hampered by the socio-political crisis and move on.
The participation of youths in the construction of the road will also facilitate movement and ease transportation of agricultural produce across the region.
The 17 councils under the Mezam, Ngoketunjia, Bui, Donga Mantung, Boyo and Menchum Divisions found along the much awaited Ring Road according to Public Works Delegate are charged with identifying and training the vulnerable youths who are main beneficiaries.
The project which also seeks to discourage young people from taking arms against the state and will see the creation of youth co-operatives to improve on the socio economic development of communities.
The project to train and employ youths to work on the ring road, will last for three years. It is estimated at over one billion CFAF.
