[ @Leomuller: ] Busola Dakolo: I was forced to sign a letter countering allegation against Fatoyinbo
- Wife of singer Timi Dakolo has revealed that she was forced at gun-point to sign a document countering child molestation allegations against COZA pastor

- The singer's wife claimed that a police officer had forced her to sign the document which contained allegations of criminal conspiracy, falsehood, mischief, and a threat to life

- Dakolo expressed that the incident happened after a tinted minibus followed her while was driving home

A month ago, Busola Dakolo, the wife of singer Timi Dakolo, had accused the senior pastor of Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), Biodun Fatoyinbo, of molesting her as a child when she was a choir in his church in Ilorin, Kwara state.

The child molestation allegation case was reportedly taken to the police for proper investigation after Nigerians demanded to know the truth.

In a recent development, the singer's wife has revealed that she was forced into a van by armed men to sign a document countering her allegations against Pastor Fatoyinbo

Busola Dakolo revealed her experience with the armed men in an interview with UK Guardian. She claimed that the incident had happened after a tinted minibus followed her while she was driving home.

According to her, the minibus blocked her path before she could enter her gate, and a man approached her. She noted that he asked her to enter the bus and demanded that she spoke to his boss in pidgin.

She explained that three men got out of the vehicle and threatened at gunpoint when she refused to enter the bus.

Dakolo said: “One was holding a gun, and I noticed a second one holding a letter. They told me they were from IG’s [the inspector general of police] office in Abuja and that I needed to sign this letter and acknowledge it.”

According to her, the letter contained allegations of criminal conspiracy, falsehood, mischief, and a threat to life, which were leveled against her and her husband.

She further stated that the Nigerian culture does not allow people to speak against men of God. She said: “Our culture doesn’t allow speaking of these sorts of things against anointed men of God. They’d rather hide it, and the party that is being victimized tends to live with that self-blame

[ @Ikem: ] The French club are desperate to get rid of Neymar but have now accepted he will only leave on loan and not for €180m.

PSG are trying to find a solution to their Neymar problem this week. Despite the Brazilian's wish to rejoin FC Barcelona, it appears they are determined to talk with everyone else before calling Josep Maria Bartomeu. Neymar knows he is being offered around and one of those sides was Manchester United - but they turned him down.

Before Ligue 1 begins this weekend, PSG want the situation resolved. The issues between the management and Neymar is beyond repair and know they must get him out before the season kicks off to avoid any further embarrassment. They spoke to United about taking Neymar on loan and Real Madrid have also asked about the Brazilian's availability.

Neymar only has eyes for Barça after making the decision to leave at the end of last season. He wants PSG to discuss a move so he can start planning for his second stint at the Camp Nou.

[ @Kallmemrb66: ] good decision my brotherFast rising actor, model and television presenter, Somadina Adinma, has finally opened up on his relationship with teenaged actress, Regina Daniels.

Adinma, who admitted that he has found love again after Regina left to marry another man, however, revealed that his opinion doesn’t count if someone decides to marry whomever he or she desires. He also talked about other issues. Enjoy it.

Tell us a bit about yourself

My name is Somadina Adinma. I am from Anambra State. I am the last child of my family. My dad is late and I have just my mom and a sibling.

From being a kid actor, how has the journey been?

It wasn’t easy. It was very hard. You know, at a point, I stopped acting because my mom felt that acting was taking my mind away from school. So, I stopped acting. I couldn’t get admission to higher institution, so I went to do a diploma course in Cooperative Economics and Management. After my two-year course, I gained admission to study Theatre Arts and Film at the university. I started acting again in my 300 Level and it was very hard. Now, staging a comeback is very hard.

What’s it like combining education and acting?

It was very hard. I studied Theatre Arts and Film, so combining acting and schooling was very tough. I wasn’t getting jobs frequently and it was after my graduation that I started getting roles.

What kind of student were you in school?

Of course, I was like every other student. The only difference was that they treated me a bit special. But then, in Theatre Arts, everybody was a star. They knew I was an actor but everybody in my department was a star, including the lecturers.

Did you fail any course?

Yes, in my first year, I didn’t know it was all about attendance and stuff like that. I had few carryovers in my first year, but I never had any carryover again till I graduated.

What was your motivation?

The love of the craft was my motivation. This was something I started as a child. Then, it was like a plaything. But it started making sense for me to want to study Theatre Arts and Film in the university.

Did life as a kid actor rob you of your childhood?

No, it didn’t. Life as a kid actor didn’t take anything away from me. I had time to play with every other child in school and at any other places.

How were you discovered as a kid actor?

There was this day I came out into my street and I met some people filming. It was actually Osita Iheme and Chinedu Ikedieze (Aki and Paw Paw) doing the filming. So, I walked up to one of the cast, he was an actor too, and said I wanted to be like these ‘kids’. He looked at me and smiled. He said ‘those are not kids, they are adults, but if you are really sure you want to act, I can meet your parents to get the go ahead’. They eventually came, but they wanted to take my brother instead of me. And I was like ‘who does that?’ Then I was very small, I was like seven or eight years old. But the edge I had over others was that I could read and understand the words, and they had to tell other kids to say ‘this and that’ before they could say so. That was how it started for me. I think my first movie was actually a scene, the tittle was ‘Charge and Bail’, and I did it with Osita Iheme.

Which movie brought you back into the spotlight?

I did two movies ‘Love and Oil’ directed by Ifeogwu. It starred acts like Yul Edochie, Nuella Njubuigbo and so many others. The second was ‘Miss Teacher’, a Chika Ike’s movie, which was about child’s right. I was one of the main characters in the movie, and then ‘Mr China’s, ‘Eliza the Village Lover’ and others. Those were the movies that people saw and started calling me for jobs again.

Now that you are back, has it been easy for you?

It wasn’t easy to stage a comeback. But now that I am back as an adult actor and a graduate, I think it will be easier.

Which is your most favourite movie?

Wow, do I have a favourite movie? I think all of them are cool, but the movies that took me everywhere was the ones I did with Regina (Daniels). I think that’s ‘the woman I love’.

What was the chemistry like between you and Regina?

We met at a location, we were both young and we bonded. We were meant to be friends and when you are cool with the characters on set, interpretation of the story becomes normal. So, it just happened. It’s like when Genevieve (Nnaji) and Ramsey (Nouah) were doing their thing. Yeah, we were able to connect.

Looking at the whole scenario, would you say meeting Regina Daniels added a kind of vibe to your career?

Yes, it did. But I was the vibe before I met her. Then, she added more vibe and that’s it. After the movies, we became friends, colleagues and close friends.

What do you have to say about the reports that she dumped you for another man and you became angry?

No, no, no, I got angry because people were coming to say stuff they didn’t know anything about. They were trolling me. All I know is that people need to mind their business. It’s not everything you inquire about. At times, people should just be like ‘this is none of my business, let me just allow this slide’. Regina and I were very close friends. She didn’t dump me for anybody. Nobody dumped anybody. Nobody is feeling bad about anything.

What’s your take on her marriage to Ned Nwoko?

I don’t have a take on someone’s personal life. Whatever anyone has chosen to do with his or her life, that’s his or her personal life. My opinion is not even needed. My stand won’t change anything.

Many people thought that though you felt sad, you’ve moved on

But why should people feel like that. When you are not ready to marry, would you tell the other person not to marry because you are not ready? That’s wickedness. Even when you are ready, you may decide not to marry the person. I am not saying that’s the case, but Regina and I were close friends.

So, you didn’t feel bad about the whole thing?

No, not at all.

Are you in a relationship now?

Yes, I have always been in a relationship.

Who’s the lucky girl?

My mom, my brother, my friends; all these people love me and I love them too. Is that not enough?

How do you handle female fans that want to get down with you?

It’s okay to be cool with everybody, all your fans. One thing they should know is that you can’t be for everybody. You can never be for everybody. I will like to follow everybody on my Instagram, but unfortunately I can’t do so.

What’s the craziest thing a fan has done to you?

The craziest thing keeps repeating itself all the time. When they want to take pictures with me in public, and I am a very shy person. I always feel embarrassed when all these things happen but I’m getting used to it little by little.

How about remuneration? Would you say the movie industry is able to put food on your table?

Sure, it does. But you don’t have to put all your eggs in one basket. You also have to do other businesses.

Apart from acting, what other things do you do?

I just finished my NYSC. I wanted to do my own movie. I’ve done one, which is showing on YouTube entitled, ‘My Best Friend Caused My Pain’. It’s the story of two siblings that did something that’s a taboo. From there, I would expand to other businesses.

Rumour has it that you are now dating Princess Nnenna Orji after dumping Regina Daniels?

(Laughter) I don’t know anything about that o. People always feel I have everything figured out, so if they feel this is what’s going on now, then it is.

Are you confirming that you are in a relationship with her?

I don’t know (laughter). It’s just that Princess Nnenna Orji and I are very close friends. The kind of friendship I had with Regina is the type of friendship I have with Nnenna now.

What attracted you to Princess?

Princess is my very good friend.

Are you using her to rub off?

No, certainly not so.

Apart from who we see on the screen, who really is Somadina?

Somadina is very funny. That’s the Somadina you don’t know. Somadina is a calm guy, but when you step on his toes, he will show you he’s not so calm. And Somadina is a very hardworking person; he’s a goal getter. Somadina believes in slow and steady and Somadina is someone who has a very big dream.

[ @Kallmemrb66: ] Governors in Northwest Nigeria on Thursday said herdsmen, bandits and cattle rustlers have been “fully forgiven”, Igbere TV reports.

The governors also said that the aforementioned persons have been granted full amnesty.every body needs freedom

Igbere TV reports that Governor Aminu Masari of Katsina made the disclosure at the end of a one-day security meeting with security agents, vigilante, volunteer groups, herdsmen and farmers on Thursday in the state.

He said that bandits and herdsmen have been asked to drop their weapons, adding that no vigilante group should attack or kill any herdsman ever again.

“As from today, no vigilante group member or volunteers should attack or kill any herdsman, as sacrifice must be made by both sides to ensure peace reign.

“Herdsmen and their families should be allowed to go about their normal businesses, attend markets and worship places without molestation provided they don’t carry arms.

“Those bandits who rustled animals from communities should immediately return them to the government or Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders Association.

“Bandits should surrender their weapons and immediately release all those kidnapped and now under their custody.

“We are happy that we have seen some releases of kidnapped victims from Zamfara and other states”, the governor said.

On his part, Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State said all states in the region would provide grazing reserve for the herders for them to settle in one place in the zone.

“We are concerned that herders are always roaming around with their animals thereby exposing themselves to different kinds of hazards,” he said.

“The governors took a uniform measure, you should also take a uniform decision not to rustle animals, kidnap or kill anyone. You should immediately release all people in your custody in order to show the world that you have truly repented.”

Face your Senate sit and leave ihedioha alone

[ @admin: ] Immediate past governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, has said that his successor, Emeka Ihedioha, is bent on destroying his landmark projects.

Okorocha said this on Thursday in reaction to the conversion of his Eastern Palm University to a campus of the Imo State University (IMSU) by the state government.

Senator Okorocha insisted that the action further exposes the sinister plot against him and his family by Ihedioha.

Part of a statement by Okorocha’s media adviser, Sam Onwuemeodo, said: “Prof. Njoku’s action only showed the speed and zeal with which the government of the day wants to destroy all the landmark projects of the APC government in the State which Senator Okorocha had headed.”

The statement said Okorocha had always insisted that the Eastern Palm University was a Public-Private-Partnership (PPP) venture.

“The government would have looked at the ideas or vision behind the building of the institutions and their advantages both short-term, and long-term and then take things easy with them, in lieu of being hasty in Scrapping them.

“Obviously, the governor was looking at the man behind the Institutions, Okorocha, instead of looking at their in-built merits both now and in the nearest future.

“We want to let Governor Ihedioha know that Okorocha had done eight years as governor and cannot be governor again. He should stop acting as if he is in contest with the former governor,” the statement said.

[ @Kallmemrb66: ] The Federal Government has said it is working towards amending the Marriage Act.

The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Interior, Georgina Ehuriah, said in Lagos on Thursday that the amendment became necessary in order for the ministry to “adequately meet the needs of citizens in the 21st century.”

Ehuriah said this while delivering the keynote address at a stakeholders’ conference with the theme, “Achieving harmonious compliance in the conduct of statutory marriage in Nigeria,” held at Sheraton Hotel, Ikeja, Lagos.

The Ministry of Interior and local government areas had been locked in legal battle over who has the statutory power to conduct and issue marriage certificates.

Ehuriah said on Thursday that by the provisions of Sections 24, 30(3) and 30 of the Marriage Act, only the Principal Registrar of Marriages was authorised to print and distribute marriage certificate to places of worship throughout Nigeria.

“The implication is that any certificate not printed by and delivered by the Principal Registrar of Marriages is illegal and cannot serve the desired purposes,” she said.

She, however, said the Ministry of Interior was making arrangements to give couples whose marriage certificates were not issued in line with the Marriage Act opportunity to bring them to conformity.

Ehuriah added that the Ministry of Interior was making moves to “appropriately advise the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on the legally-acceptable (marriage) certificate for the guidance of foreign embassies in Nigeria and Nigerian missions abroad.”

While disclosing that only 314 out of the 4,725 places of worship licensed by the Ministry of Interior to conduct marriages had renewed their licences, Ehuriah called on places of worship who had not renewed their licences to do so to avoid invalidating marriages conducted by them.

“The implication of this is that marriages conducted in unlicensed places of worship are not in line with the Marriage Act and cannot serve legal purposes when the need arises; and as such, unlicensed places of worship are operating contrary to Section 6(1) of the Marriage Act,” Ehuriah stressed.

The Permanent Secretary also said the Ministry of Interior had secured the necessary approval to establish Ikoyi Marriage Registry Annex “while arrangements are in advanced stages to establish Marriage Registries at Ikeja and Ibadan.”

“These, we hope, will, to a good extent, address some of the challenges being faced at the registry,” Ehuriah said.

So shameful

[ @Kallmemrb66: ] The Military High Command, yesterday, decried what it described as a figment of Wall Street Journal’s imagination, its report that over one thousand soldiers killed in the anti-insurgency war against Boko Haram were buried secretly in Maiduguri. Nigeria’s military built this barrier to wall off what had been farmland on the northern edge of the base in Maiduguri. An expanding cemetery lies on the other side. According to the military, the writer of the publication lacks knowledge of military values, ethos, and traditions on treatment of fallen heroes.

This is even as former Vice President and presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the 2019 elections, Alhaji Abubakar Atiku, demanded, in his reaction, report of the true state of the anti-terrorism war. The military high command in a statement signed,yesterday by the Acting Director, Defence Information, Col. Onyema Nwachukwu, titled “There Are No Secret Graveyards in the North East Theatre,” said: “The Defence Headquarters has noted with dismay an online article by “Wall Street Journal” purporting that the Nigerian military maintains secret graveyards in the North East theater of operation.

“This insinuation can only emanate from an uninformed position of the author of the said publication. It, therefore, becomes necessary to inform the public that the Armed Forces of Nigeria have a rich and solemn tradition for the interment of our fallen heroes. No secret burials — DHQ “Therefore, it must be unambiguously clarified that the Armed Forces of Nigeria do not indulge in secret burials, as it is sacrilegious and a profanity to extant ethos and traditions of the Nigerian military. “In tandem with the traditions of the Armed Forces, fallen heroes are duly honoured and paid the last respect in befitting military funeral of international standard, featuring funeral parade, grave site oration, solemn prayers for the repose of departed souls by Islamic and Christian clerics, as well as gun salutes, aside from other military funeral rites.

“The cemetery described in the publication, which is situated in Maimalari Military Cantonment, is an officially designated military cemetery for the Armed Forces of Nigeria in the North East theatre, with a Cenotaph erected in honour of our fallen heroes.

“The official cemetery has played host to several national and international dignitaries, where wreaths were laid in honour of the fallen heroes. It is, therefore, a far cry from the sacrilegious impression being painted by “Wall Street Journal”. “The Defence Headquarters, therefore, urges members of the Armed Forces and the general public to disregard such a misinformed publication and see it as a figment of the imagination of the writer, whose knowledge of military valued ethos and traditions is grossly misplaced.” The Wall Street Journal had, while quoting military sources, said the number of soldiers buried in that manner could be higher than the figure.

It said on the eve of President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit to Borno in November last year, Army commanders secretly moved corpses of soldiers from a morgue to unmarked graves. “When President Buhari visited the Maiduguri base in November, commanders rushed to bury bodies that had accumulated at the morgue from the recent attack on the base in Metele and several others, according to several soldiers at the base.

They moved the bodies from the morgue into the unmarked graves under cover of darkness,” the report said. It quoted a soldier as saying: “We could see the headlamps and the torches of the engineering division digging the graves.” The report said as the commanders prepared the base for the President’s arrival, they also drafted in additional medical staff to treat the dozens of wounded soldiers in the base’s hospital wards. It said as soldiers tried to register complaints about their conditions when Buhari addressed them, the President pledged to do everything within his powers to continue empowering them.

The report said military authorities were reportedly trying to expand the secret graveyard, adding that “as the secret cemetery at the Maimalari barracks grows, the military has expanded the site into neighbouring fields.” It also quoted Sarah James, a 50-year-old farmer, as saying: “The farmland has been fenced off so they can bury the forces.” Atiku demands inquest Meanwhile, Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has called for an independent inquiry into the reported secret burial of soldiers who died in the Boko Haram war. In a statement yesterday, Atiku said it was shocking that such a thing could happen under a democratic government.

The former vice-president described the situation as a national emergency that should shock all statesmen and leaders of thoughts into action to save Nigeria. He said: “Shock, that such a thing could happen under a democracy. I shudder to think that the cover-up of such an event of epic proportions can be true. “The men and women of our armed forces are our first, second and last defense against our domestic and foreign enemies and should be treated with love, respect, dignity and appreciation for the invaluable service they render to Nigeria. “I cannot fathom that in the space of a year, 1000 of these great patriots were killed and buried secretly without their families being told.

I hesitate to believe that deceit on such a grand scale is even possible. “To ensure that we get to the root of this matter, I urge that a judicial commission of inquiry, headed by a non-partisan and reputable jurist, be inaugurated to investigate the findings of the Wall Street Journal.

‘’While this is occurring, I also strongly urge that a panel of inquiry, comprising distinguished former military officers, be set up to investigate and report to Nigerians the true state of the war on terror and what must be done to ensure Nigeria brings a speedy end to the ongoing insurgency.”

Hours before Sunday’s eviction, Seyi was caught on camera swearing at fellow housemate, Thelma, following a disagreement.

The drama started when Seyi casually walked up to Thelma and then farted. Thelma frowned at that action and angrily lashed out at him.

Later on, in a conversation with Ike and Mercy, Seyi who was under the influnce, expressed his anger in a lengthy rant.

His words ;

“There was a day she disrespected me because of apple and tangerine. Did anyone hear about that? I ain’t a kid. I tried my best to treat everybody equally somebody think they can call me, Emi Oluwaseyi Awolowo, 1st of his name will disrespect me. Because she can shake her n3ash.

“Koni dafun, her prosperity has gone as far as I am concerned. She should pray to God because I, I put my two left feet on the floor and I will say that her prosperity is in the hands of whoever she believes in.

“That her brother that went, he has gone with what she has been looking for. Until she realizes sense before it will come back again.

[ @iam_alibs: ] The Federal Government, through the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, spent a total of N851.38bn ($2.79bn) on joint venture oil and gas assets in the first five months of 2019.

The government has said it will reduce its stakes in the JV assets to 40 per cent this year but no time frame has been announced.

The NNPC, which represents the Federal Government in the JVs with private oil firms, has an obligation to make cash call payment for the development of the JV assets.

Latest data from the corporation showed that the N851.38bn paid from January to May was transferred into the JV cash call account from the proceeds of oil and gas exports and domestic sales.

The dollar allocation to the JV cash call account was $1.59bn while the naira portion was N366.39bn ($1.2bn at a budgeted exchange rate of N305/$).

The nation’s oil and gas production structure is majorly split between the JV onshore and in shallow water with foreign and local companies and Production Sharing Contracts in deepwater offshore, to which many international oil companies have shifted their focus in recent years.

The NNPC owns 55 per cent stake in its JV with Shell and 60 per cent stakes with others, including Chevron and ExxonMobil.

Under the JV arrangement, both the NNPC and private operators contribute to the funding of operations in the proportion of their equity holdings and generally receive the produced crude oil in the same ratio.

Total crude and gas export receipt of $547.61m was recorded in May 2019 as against $432.80m in April 2019, the NNPC said in its latest monthly report.

“Of the export receipts, $168.59m was remitted to the Federation Account while $379.02m was remitted to fund the JV cost recovery for the month of May 2019 to guarantee current and future production. Naira portion of N988,990,794 was transferred to the JVCR from domestic crude oil receipts,” it added.

President Muhammadu Buhari had directed that immediate action be commenced to restructure the JV oil assets “so as to reduce government shareholding to not less than 40 per cent and that this exercise must be completed within the 2019 fiscal year.”

That's is imo property so taken it is no a bad ideas

[ @BryanDesmond5: ] The Imo State Government has taken over the Eastern Palm University, Ogboko and converted it to a campus of the Imo State University, Owerri.
The 8th Imo Assembly had passed a law allotting 90 per cent equity shares to trustees of Rochas Foundation and 10 per cent to Imo state government.

[ @iam_alibs: ] After starring in a couple of Nollywood movies, curvy actress, Biodun Sofuyi Okeowo, a.k.a Omoborty took a break from her acting career to focus more on pressing businesses.

However, the light-skinned diva who has been silent on her disappearance from the big screen has finally explained why it seems like she took a break from her acting career.

“Many times I have been asked if acting is what pays my bills. I’m here to tell you the truth, it is not. The money most of us collect is not enough to foot all our bills, especially those of us with huge responsibilities; reason some of us started paying attention to businesses years ago. That is why someone like me have done fewer movies and focused more on businesses that are more profitable. Acting will give you name, recognition, often more access and in some cases very supportive fans”, she said.

Speaking further, she advised the up and coming actors to ensure that they establish a legitimate business, in addition to building quality relationships, while pursuing their careers as filmmakers.

“My advice is, as you come into this industry or continue in this job, have a legitimate side business; build quality relationships, become a serious-minded businesswoman and expect less from any man. I have had people talk about men making women in the industry rich and I wonder what man can make you rich and help you sustain wealth like a business will do. So my advice again is that you focus on yourself, building legitimate businesses, all the rest will just be an addition. If you are lucky to meet a man who adds more to your wealth, all well and good, please grab it with both hands. There’s nothing wrong with addition”, she advised

that's a nice idea dear

[ @dongreat: ] Adulting is very hard o! Entrepreneurship is even harder. Kai! Chasing your debtors is a full-time business. Please if you’re like me and you cannot pursue people for your money, just rethink am. Entrepreneurship is not your blessing.

I make shoes for a living and I spent a lot of ‘join join’ money from family and friends, to train myself. I worked overtime and delivered my first set of orders within a month of finishing training! Only for most customers to tell me that they will pay later. Later, when you are already wearing my shoes, are you mad ni?
Before I knew it, money was flying out and nothing was coming in. I was now begging people. (If you owe someone how can you be balling on Instagram for God’s sake!) Before I could say ‘mogbe o’, only 525 was left in the akant. Don’t ask me how but that was the day that all hell broke loose.

I was calculating whether to enter one shop, buy a plate of rice and a bottle of soft drink with my last money and wait for hunger to kill me or whatsapp my debtors. You don’t know how good your mathematics is until you don’t have money. That’s how mega-calculation began.

I decided to WhatsApp my people with an epistle of my life and I waited for 2 hours after, no alert. Yepah! I was checking my texts every 1 minute for a bank credit alert when I found out that I had extra N50 as airtime. Issalie! So, I sat down on the floor of my room and spoke to God please lead me to the right person that will hear my voice and break.

I called 1 woman who bought shoes for her entire family of 7. Kai! Aunty began apologising and explaining that she had been out of the country. 20 minutes after and ‘ping!’, I don get alert God win!
It was later I found out that the extra 50 bucks was not magic or misplaced credit.

Apparently, you get like an extra 5% or 10% on MTN if you buy credit through your bank’s ATM, or via text.
Lucky me, abi. (Since then I don’t use the scratch card or paper. That extra is smart money. That’s gist for another day). Plus, I have wisened up o, I now demand 50% upfront payment on all shoes. I cannot comman go and die, na Lagos we dey.

[ @iam_alibs: ] The Tony Elumelu Foundation and the United Bank for Africa have pledged to keep empowering young entrepreneurs through the provision of finance owing to their importance in job creation and poverty reduction.

The commitment to provide more support to entrepreneurs was made on Friday in Abuja at the TEF’s 2019 entrepreneurship forum.

Speaking at the event, a trustee of the foundation, Dr Awele Elumelu, said the need to increase the level of support for small businesses was borne out of the conviction that entrepreneurs held the key to unlocking the potential of the African continent.

She said, “Our young African entrepreneurs must be prioritised if we must develop our continent. They must not only prevail, they must strive to be successful. Those ideas and innovations that came as a dream must be realised as a business that will transform the continent.

“The youths are the backbone upon which the future lies. Therefore, the government and private actors must support them.”

Also speaking on the sidelines of the event, the Group Managing Director, UBA, Mr Kennedy Uzoka, said the bank would continue to increase access to finance for entrepreneurs.

He said, “We are bringing a long standing operations over the years because we are systematically important in the countries we are operating in.”
