Osinbajo urges support for youths at 12th Chike Okoli Foundation gala

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo

Nigeria’s Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, has called on individuals and corporate bodies to support entrepreneurial training of youths, insisting that it is the best way to pivot the country to greatness.

Osinbajo, who was speaking at the 12th Chike Okoli Foundation Health and Soul Gala held at the Muson Centre, Onikan Lagos, last week, stated that the present government realises this, which is reason it is investing heavily on various intervention programmes such as the Government Enterprise and Empowerment Programme (GEEP), N-Power and Innovation Hubs.

Osinbajo thanked the Chike Okoli Foundation for its contribution to healthy living and entrepreneurship.

Noting that the foundation has so far trained 5,000 business owners and budding entrepreneurs, Osinbajo said the foundation has now become a fountain of hope that the nation needs at this time of its development.

On the late Chike Okoli in whose honour the foundation was set up, the Vice President commended his family for turning the ashes of the tragedy to a monumental phoenix of inspiration.

Founder/Chief Executive Officer, Emzor Pharmaceuticals Limited, Dr. Stella Okoli, in her speech called on Nigeria to invest in the youths, which she noted would steer them away from crimes.
