The Central Bank of Nigeria has promised to employ first class graduate of Economics from Ebonyi State. Uchenna Orji, the state commissioner for information and orientation disclosed this on Thursday, September 12 during a press meeting.
The commitment was as a result of the State Governor, David Umahi’s compelling commitment of the Central bank in monetary strengthening of his indigenes
“The fund would be housed by Zenith Bank, which would ensure that it was disbursed in line with the terms of the agreement, while the Ministry of Human Capital Development was to liaise with the Department of Small and Medium Enterprises to ensure effective implementation.
“Also, because of the way the Governor engaged the CBN, the CBN graciously approved to absorb all First-Class indigenes of Ebonyi State origin in Economics to work with the bank.
“So anybody who has a first class degree in Economics is now an automatic employee of the prestigious Central Bank of Nigeria.
“This is no mean feat and it should be appreciated by all and sundry and it is also an encouragement to our students so that they can work harder to have this kind of opportunity.”
