Not less than 20 members of Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya, Oyo State have attended and participate actively in a youth development conference tagged #YouthEmpowered2018 to complement their entrepreneurial knowledge and training acquired during the Oyo State Economic Summit.
The #YouthEmpowered2018 was organized and sponsored by the Nigeria Bottling Company (NBC) and held in four different locations in the country.
For Ibadan, the 3-day intensive training featured: Personal Life Training; Business Seminar and Business Grant competition at Daylan Events and Conference Centre, Sango-Poly/Eleyele Road, Ibadan between 24th and 26th April, 2018.
The Group with the best idea was selected out of 30 other groups and NBC promised to start up and/or sponsor their business proposals while 4 other runner-up submitted their details, although nothing has been promised yet. But it is hoped those teams might have opportunity for internship programmes with the Company. Some Majlis members, who attended, fell under this category.
However, a Majlis member, Bro AbdurRasheed Animasaun, got a gift for being one of the six participants who mobilized more than 10 people for the summit after registration had closed. He and other five awardees were promised a private session with one of the mentors who were the programme managers (Kasher Ltd) or experts from other realms of life.
At the end, participants who completed their online registration prior to the conference were given certificate of participation while others were promised e-certificate to be sent to their respective emails.
