Hon. Prince Olaide Akinremi as part of his commitment towards ensuring a sustainable and independent life for his constituents has made it an agenda to always pursue entrepreneurial opportunities, facilitating quite an extensive number of such in the year 2021 so far, and the good people of Ìbàdàn North Federal Constituency has tapped into this, benefitting each time such arises.
In a statement made available at the closing ceremony of this latest training and empowerment programme, Hon. Prince Olaide Akinremi (Jagaban) stated that he remains committed to facilitating life changing opportunities for his people, and his belief in entrepreneurial training is only stemmed from that fact that himself had towed and is still towing the path of entrepreneurship, through which he makes good success.
“I will like to encourage our people once again to embrace entrepreneurship, as it is an assured path to financial freedom. Learning one or two skills, learning a trade shouldn’t be downgraded, as the financial opportunities they provide are quite enormous. These items and cash you see here today are just a minute fraction of what we will be giving out to empower our people who have learnt one vocation or the other next week, more so to many others who need a variety of items to boost their individual businesses too”, Hon. Prince Olaide Akinremi stated.
“Gone are the days when some vocations/occupations are characterized as lowly, or belonging to a particular class of people. These days we can now see educated people venturing into businesses some of us overlook. With packaging, an educated tailor addresses himself as a fashion designer, educated hairdressers/barbers call themselves hair stylists, and so on”, Hon. Jagaban explained.
“With the right branding and packaging, they make so much profit from their jobs, and they are able to live a comfortable and independent life. These are what we all need to examine, and for anyone who is yet to look in the direction of entrepreneurship, kindly do so, as it is more than enough to set you on the path of self-sufficiency”, Hon. Olaide Akinremi concluded.
Finally, Hon. Prince Olaide Akinremi (Jagaban) announced officially that plans for a Mega Empowerment Programme where a large number of items and cash will be made available for his constituents has been finalized, and is set to hold on Wednesday 29th December 2021.
