Dr. Innocent Okwuosa, the President of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN), has called for increased empowerment schemes for youths in oil-producing communities to address restiveness and ensure a better future. Speaking at a ceremony where he was admitted into the Royal Privy Council of Oguta and conferred with the title of Damanze Aka-Udo by the paramount ruler, Igwe Nnani Nzeribe Iyiche, Okwuosa expressed concern about growing restiveness among youths in oil-producing areas. He pledged to use his position to address the issue by attracting Oguta youths to the accounting profession through ICAN’s Accounting Technician Scheme program. Okwuosa highlighted the importance of job creation in curbing youth restiveness and emphasized the need for initiatives that promote human capital development.
