  1. Sounds good. This is the type of news I want to be hearing from Northern Nigeria, and not one depressing news or how a governor did youth ’empowerment’, including sponsoring marriages for people without jobs; I do not consider such gestures to be uplifting.

    Politicians looking for where to spend money should fund this kind of human capital development, with ecosystems developed to support participants.

    We need to reverse this consumption mentality where we believe that the best way to help people is to send them money, the minds need to be liberated first, and from there better application of money would follow.

    It by creating you multiply, and not by consuming; Nigeria needs wealth creation mentality, our consumption mentality has always been a catastrophe.

    Great partnership!
