Moving forward despite struggles to stabilize the Nigerian economy, different skill acquisition programs have been set up by several individuals to assist in actualizing more sustainable economic value in the country.
Many of these programs were organized by youth who are craving for a more stable live in economy in the near future. Despite the bad economic situation in the country presently, Nigeria is considered a nation that has had amazing growth since independence due to the efforts of a large population of citizens who are making a living or income through entrepreneurship concepts.
July 12, 2016 will mark the sixth edition of a program organized by Nigerian youth in Nigeria to strengthen the capacity of entrepreneurship. “Youth Entrepreneurship Summit” (YES) was established to link middle class investors, micro-firms and businesses to macro investors such as established firms, owners of multi-conglomerate companies, and economic experts for the purpose of coaching and networking.
This year’s edition of the Youth Entrepreneurship Summit (YES) will have more impact in both new, growing and already established businesses and ideals because of the current employment issues the country is grappling with.
The Vice President of Nigeria, Prof. Yemi Osinbanjo was named among other notable economists to speak during the program. Some of the people expected are; Kyari Bukar Chairman of the Nigerian Economic Summit Group, John Momoh the CEO of Channels Television, Ibukun Awosika Chairperson of First Bank Nigeria, and Dr. Abdu Mukhtar Chief Strategy Officer of Dangote Group.
