Ondo first lady leads young entrepreneurs on a walk for SMEs

The first lady of Ondo State, Her Excellency, Mrs Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu, today led over 500 young entrepreneurs, business owners, social workers, and change champions on a walk for SMEs in Akure, the Ondo state capital canvassing support for the building and sustaining of business ecosystem in Ondo State.

In her short address, she emphasized why young people and entrepreneurs must rise to develop Ondo and tap from the various opportunities the current administration of Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu is creating in the State. She educated participants why they must take regular exercise as part of their daily routine to keep fit always and be productive in their businesses.

#Walk4SMEs, an initiative of Kitan David, is the first Nigerian initiative for small and medium enterprises, SMEs and her founders across Nigeria. It gives entrepreneurs, founders and businesses in different sectors the avenue to exercise, connect, play games and learn from one another and exercise fitness.

Kitan, an Akure-based technology non-profit leader explained in his welcome address that the event was to show support for SME founders creating values, innovating and solving problems across different sectors and network for improved business relationship.

In his words “I realized that the problems of one business lie with another business and hence, the need to connect, promote our businesses and drive more solutions to promote Akure business ecosystem for us to succeed together”

The walk which took-off from Ceci Supermarket, Alagbaka, ended at Signatures Hotel and Suites where participants engaged in various games, networking, fun and presentation of gift items to the first lady.

The event was sponsored by Ceci Supermarket and CSI Red Carpet with support from hundreds of partners.

Watch out for the next edition in another city.
