Mr President's Inaugural speech

Inaugural speech by His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari following his swearing-in as President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on 29th May, 2015
I am immensely grateful to God Who Has preserved us to witness this day and this occasion. Today marks a triumph for Nigeria and an occasion to celebrate her freedom and cherish her democracy. Nigerians have shown their commitment to democracy and are determined to entrench its culture. Our journey has not been easy but thanks to the determination of our people and strong support from friends abroad we have today a truly democratically elected government in place.
I would like to thank President Goodluck Jonathan for his display of statesmanship in setting a precedent for us that has now made our people proud to be Nigerians wherever they are. With the support and cooperation he has given to the transition process, he has made it possible for us to show the world that despite the perceived tension in the land we can be a united people capable of doing what is right for our nation. Together we co-operated to surprise the world that had come to expect only the worst from Nigeria. I hope this act of graciously accepting defeat by the outgoing President will become the standard of political conduct in the country.
I would like to thank the millions of our supporters who believed in us even when the cause seemed hopeless. I salute their resolve in waiting long hours in rain and hot sunshine to register and cast their votes and stay all night if necessary to protect and ensure their votes count and were counted.  I thank those who tirelessly carried the campaign on the social media. At the same time, I thank our other countrymen and women who did not vote for us but contributed to make our democratic culture truly competitive, strong and definitive.
I thank all of you.
Having just a few minutes ago sworn on the Holy Book, I intend to keep my oath and serve as President to all Nigerians.
I belong to everybody and I belong to nobody.
A few people have privately voiced fears that on coming back to office I shall go after them. These fears are groundless. There will be no paying off old scores. The past is prologue.
Our neighbours in the Sub-region and our African brethenen should rest assured that Nigeria under our administration will be ready to play any leadership role that Africa expects of it. Here I would like to thank the governments and people of Cameroon, Chad and Niger for committing their armed forces to fight Boko Haram in Nigeria.
I also wish to assure the wider international community of our readiness to cooperate and help to combat threats of cross-border terrorism, sea piracy, refugees and boat people, financial crime, cyber crime, climate change, the spread of communicable diseases and other challenges of the 21st century.
At home we face enormous challenges. Insecurity, pervasive corruption, the hitherto unending and seemingly impossible fuel and power shortages are the immediate concerns. We are going to tackle them head on. Nigerians will not regret that they have entrusted national responsibility to us. We must not succumb to hopelessness and defeatism. We can fix our problems.
In recent times Nigerian leaders appear to have misread our mission. Our founding fathers, Mr Herbert Macauley, Dr Nnamdi Azikiwe, Chief Obafemi Awolowo, Alhaji Ahmadu Bello, the Sardauna of Sokoto, Alhaji Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, Malam Aminu Kano, Chief J.S. Tarka, Mr Eyo Ita, Chief Denis Osadeby, Chief Ladoke Akintola and their colleagues worked to establish certain standards of governance. They might have differed in their methods or tactics or details, but they were united in establishing a viable and progressive country. Some of their successors behaved like spoilt children breaking everything and bringing disorder to the house.
Furthermore, we as Nigerians must remind ourselves that we are heirs to great civilizations: Shehu Othman Dan fodio’s caliphate, the Kanem Borno Empire, the Oyo Empire, the Benin Empire and King Jaja’s formidable domain. The blood of those great ancestors flow in our veins. What is now required is to build on these legacies, to modernize and uplift Nigeria.
Daunting as the task may be it is by no means insurmountable. There is now a national consensus that our chosen route to national development is democracy. To achieve our objectives we must consciously work the democratic system. The Federal Executive under my watch will not seek to encroach on the duties and functions of the Legislative and Judicial arms of government. The law enforcing authorities will be charged to operate within the Constitution. We shall rebuild and reform the public service to become more effective and more serviceable. We shall charge them to apply themselves with integrity to stabilize the system.
For their part the legislative arm must keep to their brief of making laws, carrying out over-sight functions and doing so expeditiously. The judicial system needs reform to cleanse itself from its immediate past. The country now expects the judiciary to act with dispatch on all cases especially on corruption, serious financial crimes or abuse of office. It is only when the three arms act constitutionally that government will be enabled to serve the country optimally and avoid the confusion all too often bedeviling governance today.
Elsewhere relations between Abuja and the States have to be clarified if we are to serve the country better. Constitutionally there are limits to powers of each of the three tiers of government but that should not mean the Federal Government should fold its arms and close its eyes to what is going on in the states and local governments. Not least the operations of the Local Government Joint Account. While the Federal Government can not interfere in the details of its operations it will ensure that the gross corruption at the local level is checked. As far as the constitution allows me I will try to ensure that there is responsible and accountable governance at all levels of government in the country. For I will not have kept my own trust with the Nigerian people if I allow others abuse theirs under my watch.
However, no matter how well organized the governments of the federation are they can not succeed without the support, understanding and cooperation of labour unions, organized private sector, the press and civil society organizations. I appeal to employers and workers alike to unite in raising productivity so that everybody will have the opportunity to share in increased prosperity. The Nigerian press is the most vibrant in Africa. My appeal to the media today – and this includes the social media – is to exercise its considerable powers with responsibility and patriotism.
My appeal for unity is predicated on the seriousness of the legacy we are getting into. With depleted foreign reserves, falling oil prices, leakages and debts the Nigerian economy is in deep trouble and will require careful management to bring it round and to tackle the immediate challenges confronting us, namely; Boko Haram, the Niger Delta situation, the power shortages and unemployment especially among young people. For the longer term we have to improve the standards of our education. We have to look at the whole field of medicare. We have to upgrade our dilapidated physical infrastructure.
The most immediate is Boko Haram’s insurgency. Progress has been made in recent weeks by our security forces but victory can not be achieved by basing the Command and Control Centre in Abuja. The command centre will be relocated to Maiduguri and remain until Boko Haram is completely subdued. But we can not claim to have defeated Boko Haram without rescuing the Chibok girls and all other innocent persons held hostage by insurgents.
This government will do all it can to rescue them alive. Boko Haram is a typical example of small fires causing large fires. An eccentric and unorthodox preacher with a tiny following was given posthumous fame and following by his extra judicial murder at the hands of the police. Since then through official bungling, negligence, complacency or collusion Boko Haram became a terrifying force taking tens of thousands of lives and capturing several towns and villages covering swathes of Nigerian sovereign territory.
Boko Haram is a mindless, godless group who are as far away from Islam as one can think of. At the end of the hostilities when the group is subdued the Government intends to commission a sociological study to determine its origins, remote and immediate causes of the movement, its sponsors, the international connexions to ensure that measures are taken to prevent a reccurrence of this evil. For now the Armed Forces will be fully charged with prosecuting the fight against Boko haram. We shall overhaul the rules of engagement to avoid human rights violations in operations. We shall improve operational and legal mechanisms so that disciplinary steps are taken against proven human right violations by the Armed Forces.
Boko Haram is not only the security issue bedeviling our country. The spate of kidnappings, armed robberies, herdsmen/farmers clashes, cattle rustlings all help to add to the general air of insecurity in our land. We are going to erect and maintain an efficient, disciplined people – friendly and well – compensated security forces within an over – all security architecture.
The amnesty programme in the Niger Delta is due to end in December, but the Government intends to invest heavily in the projects, and programmes currently in place. I call on the leadership and people in these areas to cooperate with the State and Federal Government in the rehabilitation programmes which will be streamlined and made more effective. As ever, I am ready to listen to grievances of my fellow Nigerians. I extend my hand of fellowship to them so that we can bring peace and build prosperity for our people.
No single cause can be identified to explain Nigerian’s poor economic performance over the years than the power situation. It is a national shame that an economy of 180 million generates only 4,000MW, and distributes even less. Continuous tinkering with the structures of power supply and distribution and close on $20b expanded since 1999 have only brought darkness, frustration, misery, and resignation among Nigerians. We will not allow this to go on. Careful studies are under way during this transition to identify the quickest, safest and most cost-effective way to bring light and relief to Nigerians.
Unemployment, notably youth un-employment features strongly in our Party’s Manifesto. We intend to attack the problem frontally through revival of agriculture, solid minerals mining as well as credits to small and medium size businesses to kick – start these enterprises. We shall quickly examine the best way to revive major industries and accelerate the revival and development of our railways, roads and general infrastructure.
Your Excellencies, My fellow Nigerians I can not recall when Nigeria enjoyed so much goodwill abroad as now. The messages I received from East and West, from powerful and small countries are indicative of international expectations on us. At home the newly elected government is basking in a reservoir of goodwill and high expectations. Nigeria therefore has a window of opportunity to fulfill our long – standing potential of pulling ourselves together and realizing our mission as a great nation.
Our situation somehow reminds one of a passage in Shakespeare’s Julius Ceasar
There is a tide in the affairs of men which,
taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life,
Is bound in shallows and miseries.
We have an opportunity. Let us take it.
Thank you
Muhammadu Buhari
President Federal Republic of NIGERIA
and
Commander in-chief-of the Armed forces

HAPPY DEMOCRACY DAY

May 29th is the anniversary of democracy in Nigeria, what makes this different is the fact that it is a transitional one. Today the baton of power has changed hands from Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan and the former Vice President Arch. Aliyu Sambo to Gen. Muhammad Buhari and Prof. Osibajo the new President and Vice President, respectively, of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
It is no more news that these are challenging times for anyone who wins the election. The expectations are high. From issues regarding Security- in tackling Boko  Haram sects, Fuel subsidy , Energy situation in Nigeria, Education, our Foreign Reserves and lots more, the new occupants of the Aso Rock have a lot of work to do, Nigerians and as well the international community does not expect less in their delivery and execution of the change mandate they promise- the very wave that brought them into the office at the polls.
Change is here. A change in the occupant of the seat of power at the presidential level and consequently at different levels in turn- Gubernatorial and at legislative quarters changes many things. Q new wave of power will always have a new set of people rise with it.
As we congratulate our new President and his Vice President and as we expect the delivery of a new Nigeria, waiting to see the positive face of change, we must understand that, Change delivery is the collective responsibility of Nigerians, If we all, over140 million Nigerians will be the voice and agents of change in our various spheres, circles across all strata, we all will arrive at the shores of a new Nigeria- the greatest country to live, in the world sooner than we expect. Please read Mr President's inaugural speech shared in the next post.

Cheers to a new Nigeria!

FUEL SCARCITY: WHAT TO DO

Well Nigeria will be great but it's going first to turning point and at turning point dy/dx =0 (Maths, at turning point the rate of change tends to zero)
Gtb closing early, classic FM, beats and some other stations ran out of diesel, MTN gradually dwindling on diesel reserves
Other networks might follow suit but I think Globacom might come in last because the Rich man has got some oil...
We have had so many fuel issues as far as I can remember in the  90s, but more recently we can remember occupy Nigeria,  is this 'occupy Aso Rock?'
What I know right now is, this fuel scarcity is fast affecting everything like a chain reaction... Even transport fares are ballooning at all bus stops. According to Aljazeera, airlines are struck also by this #Fuelscarcity aerocontractor cancelled 80% of its test (sorry I meant to say flights) and Kenya airline and a couple others had to divert some flights from Nigeria.
Well what Nigerians can do at this time is Believe,  pray and also act.
Do not panic.Stay informed, tune in to some radio stations that can run for some hours and as PHCN isn't left out go on solar if you can or have the facility
Stock up on enough foodstuffs and of course try as much to have some cash handy if you still can, Food or  cash is king right now. Most banks will start closing early from today.
You can also save up data on multiple provider SIM cards if you can. Imagine! Just yesterday, I heard a couple tell some one they travelled early to Ibadan from Lagos to buy fuel. (Ibadan is in Oyo state in Nigeria, about 2hours drive from Lagos). Schools might go on some breaks if this lingers.
I don't have any information at the moment,as to any negotiations going on to salvage  the situation or where to buy fuel at the moment. But you can share any info with us all in the comments section or also follow discussions on Twitter via #FuelScarcity.

I still believe in the greatness of Nigeria.

MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE










MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE

Making the right choice isn't always as easy as it seems. Many a times, it feels easy to stay in the comfort of the indecisive crowd or to even hide within the warmth of the general decision of the general milieu. No matter how uncomfortable and unpopular it seems, It is always in our power to pitch our tent with what is right and just.We need to do the right thing and make the right choice. Always.

The eventual pleasure and fulfillment in making the right choice far outweighs the short moment of discomfort or pain caused by the sacrifice made.

At times, we only need to pay it forward and just buy the future by our decisive and sacrificial acts in the present.We need to alwas remember that "Nothing is ventured; nothing is gained".

And when we have done what is required of us, if we have done all we ought to do, when we ought and can do them, we then shall be able to do all we want when we want to do them.

If we continuously ensure that every little choice made is the right one; we would have made dogged, conscious effort at living inspiring lives and generations unborn would look back and celebrate our greatness for the future we have cast ahead.

Cheers!

Spirituality: A BILLIONAIRE'S PRAYER

Job  42:10 And the LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before.

God's programme cuts through generations and spans through time to eternity. However, it is His purpose to reach others through us.

One of the wonderful plans he has for us is to pray for our friends. FRIENDS here mean 'friends' it is all encompassing, from family, friends or acquaintances to colleagues and even strangers who we mustn't  leave without making friends with.

If anyone needed prayer most it was Job - a billionaire who had lost EVERYTHING (health and wealth), except his life, but God wanted him to go ahead and pray for his rich friends! He did.

When we pray for others we can never run out of God-centered prayer requests.
How many times have we tried prayer but  we could not really feel we have enough or a lot to pray about? 
When you are concerned about other's needs, God start being concerned about your needs.
Remember your children or spouse can and should even be 'friends' with you.
So
Pray for your Children
Pray for your spouse
Pray for family
Pray for your friends
Pray for your staff
Pray for your country
Pray for the sick
Pray for the aged
Pray for those who need to become rich.
Pray for the nations
Pray for those who need the gospel

Pray that the will of God be done on their lives. John17:3

So also I pray for you today my friend; that according to the word of the Lord, today shall not just be a day of double but a day of 7 fold restoration of all that has been stolen .
Arise, Shine for your light has come and the glory of the Lord is risen upon you! In Jesus name.

Remember Jesus is the way the truth and the LIGHT.. to really SHINE in life you need to have a solid, purposeful relationship with Him. GOODNEWS! You can start now. By speaking to Him saying, JESUS I know and realize you Love me and gave your self in my place. Come into my life and be my Lord and saviour. You might want to buzz me to let me know if you made this new decision or you can  join a Bible- believing local Church in your  neighborhood. Welcome to God's family!

Once again remember Job, the billionaire who lost all; but still prayed for his friends and God restored all and gave him twice as much.

Your billion-dollar FRIEND,

Coming to Lagos.

Coming to Lagos.
I am sure  we all remember the very popular movie of the 90s Coming to America, but not many of us know how great a phenomenon Coming to Lagos was for many of us- at least,for me it was, back then as a young school boy born in Ibadan, Oyo state and brought up in Osogbo, Osun state- both states are in Nigeria, West Africa.I always looked forward to coming to Lagos during my holidays.
Those days, Lagos was held in high regard as a land of beauty and wits- I believe it's still a centre of excellence. A while ago  I thought it's crazy and adventurous- but my mum always said " wait till you get to New York"
So that was the Lagos of my childhood, one that people described with different features.
The first and most notable was also described in the words of a popular Yoruba Musician, saying on entering Lagos, " Wa pade awon ere meta, / agbagba meta, ikan ni, o gbodo rindin, ikeji ni ogbodo suegbe, iketa ni  o gbodo ya mungun l'Eko" intreprations: You will meet 3 statues on entering Lagos one says 'don't dull, the second says 'shine your eyes' and the third says never become a 'maga' in Lagos'

All that has been described both in vernacularly and colloquially sums up the fact that; Lagos seems to screams out loud a message that says BE SMART!
So in Lagos I see people running after something or something running after them;
I see people asleep in long staff buses early in the morning and then in the evenings to and from work. Yet Lagos is a beautiful place as well as some other places in Nigeria.
Whether you are 'Coming to America or " Coming to Lagos" Be Smart, Learn and be the very best God has destined you to be.
I am your billionaire coach.
Live smart!

INSPIRING STORY

I read a lovely story earlier today from someone in my network,and I have decided to share with as many people as possible...

Please enjoy:

My request is that pls read this and get your children also to read it.

One young man went to apply for a managerial position in a big company.

He passed the initial interview, and now would meet the director for the final interview.

The director discovered from his CV that the youth's academic achievements were excellent.

He asked, Did you obtain any scholarships in school...?
the youth answered "NO".

Who paid for your school fees...?
" Parents ", he replied.

"Where did they work......?"

"They worked as clothes cleaner.”

The director requested the youth to show his hands.
The youth showed a pair of hands that were smooth and perfect.

"Have you ever helped your parents wash the clothes ?"

"Never, my parents always wanted me to study and read more books.
Besides, my parents can wash clothes faster than me.

The director said, "I have a request.

When you go home today, go and clean your parents hands, and then see me tomorrow morning.

The youth felt dejected.
When he went back home, he asked his parents to let him clean their hands.
His parents felt strange, happy but with mixed feelings,
They showed their hands to their son.

The youth cleaned their hands slowly.
His tear fell as he did that.
It was the first time he noticed that his parents hands were so wrinkled, and there were so many bruises in their hands.

Some bruises were so painful that they winced when he touched it.

This was the first time the youth realized that it was this pair of hands that washed the clothes everyday to enable him to pay the school fees.

The bruises in the hands were the price that the parents had to pay for his education, his school activities and his future.

After cleaning his parents hands, the youth quietly washed all the remaining clothes for  them.

That night, parents and son talked for a very long time.

Next morning, the youth went to the director's office.

The Director noticed the tears in the youth's eyes, when he asked:

"Can you tell me what have you done and learned yesterday in your house....?"

The youth answered,
I cleaned my parents hand, and also finished cleaning all the remaining clothes'

“I now know what appreciation is.
Without my parents, I would not be who I am today...

By helping my parents, only now do I realize how difficult and tough it is to get something done on your own And I have come to appreciate the importance and value of helping one’s family.

The director said,
"This is what I am looking for in a manager.
I want to recruit a person who can appreciate the help of others, a person who knows the sufferings of others to get things done, and a person who would not put money as his only goal in life.”

“You are hired.”

A child, who has been protected and habitually given whatever he wanted, would develop an "entitlement mentality" and would always put himself first.

He would be ignorant of his parent's efforts.

If we are this kind of protective parents, are we really showing love or are we destroying our children instead...?

You can let your child live in a big house, eat a good meal,  watch on a big screen TV.

But when you are cutting grass, please let them experience it.

After a meal, let them wash their plates and bowls together with their brothers and sisters.

It is not  because you do not have money to hire a maid, but it is because you want to love them in a right way.

You want them to understand, no matter how rich their parents are, one day their hair will grow grey, same as the parent of that young person.

The most important thing is your child learns how to appreciate the effort and experience the difficulty and learns the ability to work with others to get things done...

Try to forward this story to as many people as possible...this may change somebody's life/attitude

I just did mine now

Clarity

If you want to go faster travel alone. If you must go farther travel together. The whole world always steps aside for him who knows where he is going. Wherever you want to go; people have already been. The big secret is Be clear; with clarity you can ask the right questions Those who ask directions never get lost always ask.
Amazing things happen when we ask the right questions.

LIFEHACKS



It's a great day. Today I want to share some life hacks from a new lifehack app that will help across different topics. What is a lifehack? See definition..


lifehack
/ˈlʌɪfhak/

noun
informal
a strategy or technique adopted in order to manage one's time and daily activities in a more efficient way.

#Lifehacks

*To clean a microwave: Put a bowl of water inside and microwave for 3 minutes. The steam will moisten everything up making cleaning simple! #Lifehacks 

* Drinking two cups of water before meals can make you lose an average of 4.5 more pounds within 12 weeks than if you don't.

* Life Tip: Buy a fire extinguisher before you need a fire extinguisher!

* 9 foods that get rid of an upset stomach: Bananas, Ginger, Plain yogurt, Papaya, Apple Sauce, Oatmeal, White Rice, Chamomile Tea, Chicken Broth

*Buying a car? Buy it at the end of the month. Salespeople have quotas to meet each month and will be more likely to cut you a deal.

*You're 50% more likely to remember something if you speak it out loud instead of simply reading it over and over.

Tie a small piece of bright-colored fabric to your luggage. You'll be able to spot your bag in no time at the airport.

By peeing in the shower, you can save about 1,157 gallons of water a year! 

*Drinking a cold glass of water in the morning will wake you faster than a cup of coffee.








Have a great day!

Spirituality : Head for the Light


Head for the Light

We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts.

– 2 Peter 1:19

So many times when we need insight into a problem, we try to get it by focusing our attention on that problem. We study it. We ponder it. We examine it from every angle. But the Apostle Peter gives us a different approach. He says we should take heed (or focus our attention) to the written Word of God until the answer to that problem dawns on us through the light of revelation.

We use the term seeing the light in the natural all the time. We say, “Have you seen the light on that yet?” meaning, “Do you have insight into that situation?” Well, the entrance of God’s Word into our hearts brings light (Psalm 119:130). It brings the insight we need.

Have you ever been in a dark room and tried to find your way out? Or been lost outside in the night? What is the first thing you look for in these situations? Light!

It could be coming from under the door or shimmering from a lamp in a house far off. But either way, you head straight for it. You don’t waste your time studying the darkness. You don’t focus your attention on that. You fix your eyes on the light because you know its brightness will drive out the confusion of the darkness and orient you to your surroundings.

If you need insight on some problem or situation you’re facing, pay attention to the Word. Head for the Light and the answer you need will dawn on you.

If You can see it; You can Seize it

If you can see it. You can achieve it. The Earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof. Everything you already need already exists; you just might not have accessed it yet; all you need might just be to increase your level of consciousness about the problem or its solutions.
Albert Einstein said no problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.
Grow up. Search for and imbibe the truth; and the truth will definitely set you free.
You have to be able to see it to really Seize it!
What do you see?
Grow to greatness!

Spirituality : Garment of Grace

Service  in church today was so power-packed and the message though very brief was purely prophetic. I share briefly a short extract from the service.

Topic: The Garment of Grace
Preacher: Pastor Ola Olukoyede
Text:  I Samuel 16:1-13

Grace is the supernatural ability of God to give you what you don't deserve

3 Lessons from  the passage

1.It is God who chooses who receives grace.

2. God can through grace bring you from the back and put you ahead of the pack.

3. God will always raise a prophet to activate the grace in you. A prophet is the servant of God who speaks the mind of God.

Do have a grace-filled week

ACTION IS KEY

"Vision without action is a daydream. Action without vision is a nightmare."-- Japanese Proverb

I remembered many years back as an undergraduate, a faculty dean once taught us Project Methodology,while he never failed to mention the need for adequate research in writing a great report, he taught us amongst other things one key lesson and it still rings through today; he said " at a point, you need to stop reading and start writing"
What he meant here is that a good thesis will not write itself, you need to move above the bundle of research or paper work to gaining traction through action.

Vision and action goes and in hand, just as the map is imperative to the journey.

Rise To Greatness and keep taking action on your dreams.

Youth Connect Summit Holds Tomorrow









I have received an invitation to attend this event couple of days ago, I intend to share it as well on this platform

Please read details and line-up of speakers as shared by Vanguard:


Astute Political economist and management expert, Professor Pat Utomi will be joined by other prominent CEOs at the 2015 edition of “Youth Connect” summit to be held at the multipurpose Hall A&B of University of Lagos, on May 2, 2015 by 9AM. The CEO and Founder of Centre for Values in Leadership (CVL) will be speaking on the summit theme “Turning Your Passion to Profit” in a bid to help liberate the minds of the younger generation towards resourcefulness and financial independence.

The event put together by Business Impact Limited in collaboration with the University of Lagos is designed, according to the organisers “to propel youths towards discovering their innate abilities and maximizing them resourcefully for the purpose of financial independence and the cause of humanity at large”.

Yinka Sanni, CEO Stanbic IBTC Bank, Niyi Adesanya, CEO Fifth Gear Plus, Bimpe Bamgbose-Martins, Founder, SMILE NGO, Gus Ogunlowo, CEO Ba2you, UK, and the host cum CEO, Business Impact Limited, Samson Olatunde have been named as other facilitators for the summit. The 4th edition hosted last year had in attendance Fela Durotoye (Founder, GEMSTONE Nation Builders Foundation); Jimi Tewe (CEO, Inspiro Consulting Ltd.); Asiwaju Aderonke (Head of Counselling Unit UNILAG) and Maureen Iyasele (Founder Jobmag).

Expressing optimism about the impact of the summit, relying on remarkable reviews from earlier editions under the “Below 45” label, received over the years, Samson Olatunde believes “Youth Connect is envisioned to raise astute leaders, indomitable entrepreneurs and trail blazers with respect to career, as the summit is foreseen to spread to other states within Nigeria with time”, he further stressed.

Attendance to the summit is free and open to the general public; however, a mandatory pre-registration is required at the summit website.
