One of the beneficiaries, Abimbola Adewale Oladipo while speaking after receiving his device, says it is the “the happiest day of his life”.
Oladipo, an Ogun indigene says excitedly: “Youths are going to benefit from me because government [sic] has already established me. Me too [sic] I’m going to do the same to people that did not have the benefit to come and join us here.

The N-Power Creative programme which was announced in October 2018 will train and develop 5,000 young creative talents.
The strategy is to put Nigeria’s creative industry on the global radar as exporters of world-class services and content.
Training, which commenced on the 5th of July will last 3 months, made up of 1-month in-class and a 2-month hands-on group project, across selected Nigerian cities.
The participants will be trained and certified in one of the following courses:
Animation | Graphic Design | Post-production | Script Writing
At the end of the training, some participants will get local and international internship opportunities while others will be linked to job and market opportunities.
