Akin Alabi, Sunny Philips, Others To Speak At SUG Entrepreneurship Programme

A wise man once said "Do  not ask your country what she can do for you but rather ask your country what you can do for her"
The concise and laudable efforts of our indefatigable Students' Union Government cannot be overemphasized as the well being of the OOU Students seem to be their ultimate goal.

It is in this vein that the Students' House of Senate, Olabisi Onabanjo University has set to hold an entrepreneurship programme for the students on the 10th - 12th of April at the OGD Hall between the hours of 10am to 4pm.

Dist. Sen. Bello Olayinka Yusuf, the OOU SUG Senate President  in an interview with Campus Mirror, revealed that the programme is intended to alleviate financial struggles amongst students.

"It is an economic development programme and agricultural entrepreneur approach to alleviate poverty and make needs of students be met with alacrity which could make the learning environment more conducive for them", the Senate President said.

It is of no doubt that students pass through social and academics rigours at various levels of their campus lives, lack of Entrepreneurship embracement has been one of the core causes of social and moral decadence among youths. "We're not in support of grooming cyber thieves  and scammers that's why we have come up with this programme to let students know they can learn something while they're still learning and pursuing their degree." he added.

Adequate facilities and intense preparation has been made available for intensive practicals so as to make you the person you've always dreamed to be. Various departments like the maize and cassava department, tie and dye (adire) department,   department of cocoa (chocolate production) and department of leathering where lectures will expatiate on how to make bags, shoes, small purse, would be given out with other entrepreneurship skills.

The programme would be graced by the presence of highly respected men and women in the society in the person of Akin Alabi (the CEO Nairabet), Dr Sunny Philips (the CEO Sunny Philips Life Coaching Centre), Ebere Chidi (CEO Market Online), Otunfodurin Damilola (CEO Creative Designer), Dr Maku Olukayode ( lecturer 1, Department of Economics.), The Honorable Commissioner for Education in Ogun State, Mrs Modupe Mojota and Abidoun Folawuyo (a graduate of accounting who's now an accomplished Shoe maker).

A lot of benefits are embedded in the programme as there would be a 30% loan of the initial capital for students who would like to set up a business with his/her acquired skills.

It is also a goodnews that this life changing and paradigm shifting programme could be experienced with just a token of #500 as a concise efforts have been made by the union to subsidize it and forms could be obtained from the union building, Faculty Presidents and Senators of the union.
