Osun State government has dissolved the Osun Youth Empowerment Scheme (O-YES), creating the Imole Youth Corps as replacement.

In a circular issued by the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Teslim Igbalaye, the state government said the decision was taken to reposition the youth empowerment programme inherited from the previous government for effective functionality, sustainability and dignity of labour.

“In fulfilling one of the electoral promises of His Excellency, the Governor of Osun State, Senator Ademola Jackson Nurudeen Adeleke in ensuring meaningful and proper youth engagement in the state, a new scheme code named ‘Imole Youth Corps’ is hereby put in place to engage our teeming youths in the state. 

“Application forms will be available for prospective youths in all the 30 LGs including Ife East Area Office of the state free of charge beginning from Friday, 17th February, 2023”, the circular said.

It would be recalled that O’YES programme was established about 12 years ago by the former Governor of the state, Rauf Aregbesola.

He established the scheme to mark his 100 days in office.

The scheme, was one of the fulfilment of Aregbesola’s promises to create job employment among the youths.
