#Project606060: THE EUPHORIA OF LAGOS/SOUTH WEST NEW ENTREPRENEURS BOOT CAMP ~Enthralling |Enchanting | Assuring

With excellence etched in our operational culture, we had set a standard, a benchmark below which we couldn't afford to fall. It has become more of a creed than code to which everyone in the team have swore to strictly adhere. We have recorded some level of success in Abuja and Lagos Centre, as to be expected,  promised surprises.
Participants began to trickle into the LCCI Hall, venue of the Screening so early, defiling the popular chaotic traffic logjams occasioned by the closure of several metropolitan roads due to reconstruction and routine maintenance. Determination was unmistakably written on everyone's face, depicting only one thing: enthusiasm. 
In reenactment of the Independence Anniversary, the ambiance was colourful, the Green-White-Green decorations made many attendees prouder Nigerians and nature was friendly with clement weather on the menu. The usual "Eko for show" was on display, what with the memorabilias, the razzmatazz and the paparazzi? Lagos sure paved the road to the Boot Camp so solidly and raised the bar, a notch higher!

The Convener, Congressman Bimbo Daramola, held the audience spellbound as he explained the introspection common to nation's at milestones as Nigeria's Diamond Anniversary. He lamented the already bad situations associated with youth unemployment which has been made worse by the COVID-19 realities. Stressing the reasons for birthing the initiative, he emphasised the need for remediation processes that  guarantee predictable, tangible and measurable outcomes.
The Guest Speaker, Mr. Lanre Oyenuga, used to have a flourishing Marketing career with an established manufacturing concern which, at the time, was already taking him to several African countries but had to plunged into the entrepreneurial ocean without a guiding compass and "life vest" but successfully swam ashore with sweet tales to show for it. One major take home from his speech that was ladened with personal life's stories, was to dare failure which he said would come but only a matter of when. He wrapped up his session with the famous Prof. Tai Solarin quote of "may your roads be rough"!

Here comes the zenith, the point to fling open the doors to the Screening Room where Barr. Winifred Kwentua-Aboderin, Mr. Yemi Anjorin, Dr. Bukola Jaiyesimi et al as Assessors were ready and waiting for individual participant for a live pitching of their proposals and business ideas hoping to progress to the Entrepreneurs Boot Camp.
While enthused participants and satisfied organisers savour the joy of hosting a successful Lagos/South West Screening exercise, everyone seems to act Oliver Twist, asking for more as they all anticipate the next edition at yet another zone.
