“If you don’t have ambition, you should not be alive” ~Aliko Dangote
It is apparent that Nigeria has a large youth population. Its also apparent that the vast ma-jority of these youth are seeking for guidance, mentorship, and inspiration.
They are the millennial generation who are eager to break new ground, aspire for great heights in spite of narrow opportunities. Their world is shaped by social media, their business is driven by the mobile-phone, they demand high-speed broadband with insatiable appetite
with a fearless zest to achieve.
They ask questions of the society and demand answers with the same force. Their yardstick is only as long as the ‘’last achievement’’. They seek for something to brag about amongst their peers and want to know “when was the last time we achieved something great that stands us out as a nation?’’
The vision is to give hope to these youths, re-energise their zest and stimulate their thirsts for greatness. To re-affirm their hopes and encourage their motivation to achieve their dreams.
“ I believe the time is here for Nigeria to be repositioned on the global Stage, by challenging the status quo and
achieving beyond expectations” ~ Mr Ladi Ani-Mumuney
