Olawande launches ‘corpreneur support initiative’

In a bid to foster creativity, innovation, and skill development amongst members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), the Minister of State for Youth Development, Ayodele Olawande, on Tuesday announced a diverse range of financial support for corps entrepreneurs codenamed “Corprenuers” during his maiden visit to NYSC Orientation Camp in Iseyin, Oyo state. The minister said corps members had shown unimaginable level of industry, with many of them already running creative businesses even before they enrol in the NYSC programme.

In a press release signed by the Director, Press and Public Relations, Omolora Esan, the minister said: “We have to be innovative in tackling unemployment. We are aware that some of you have already engaged your talents to establish businesses and create jobs for yourselves.

“We are therefore prepared to support you to advance those businesses and take them to the next level before you pass out of the NYSC.”
