The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, has said his sole focus is to engage the African youth productively, starting from Nigeria.
Ooni Ogunwusi stated this Tuesday while speaking at the unveiling of OjajaMore, a viable food-chain retail store dealing in groceries and other consumables in Abere, Osun state.
The Ooni added that there will be no going back in his determination to continue his vision to create a dependable retail brand for Nigeria, adding that he intends to use the retail store initiative as his deliberate way of getting youth gainfully engaged.
“My sole focus is to engage the African youth productively starting from Nigeria as we groom them to take leadership positions. They must start somewhere and that is why I am giving them OjajaMore as the platform, it is beyond mere buying and selling,” he said.
Ooni Ogunwusi added, “Beyond grooming young minds and serious minded youths in retail business, this initiative will offer over 100,000 direct and indirect employments to our youth across the country and on the continent of Africa, thereby contributing in no small means to human development and capacity building. That’s my target.”
