Richard Angwenyi

We recommend the business plan to be developed in a simple and understanding for a non-specialist form without using narrowly specialized terms. It has to be consistent enough to embrace all major parts of the project, and at the same time it has to be relatively short to keep up the investors’ interest. For visual effects, we recommend graphs and diagrams. For the investor to get interested, the business plan has to provide proof that the planned data will be achieved. Business plan has to be done correctly, accurately and in a simple form for reading for the impression not to turn against you.

Christianah Ajala COO at Heyes-Cole Services

I am a young lady with a flair for business. I have started a few businesses but due to lack of adequate knowledge, effective mentoring and much needed capital, I had setbacks.
This program, for me, is giving me another chance to realise my dreams and take my rightful place in the business world and the whole world at large.
I am hopeful about the efficacy and the viability of the gains therein. Seeing that there is a man and many others (mentors) eager to give back to the society is enough encouragement for we up and coming entrepreneurs.
I hereby recommend the Tony Elumelu Entrepreneurship Program for anybody and everybody that believe they have something substantial to offer the world through their entrepreneurial ideas and their businesses.
Let's change our land together. With TEEP, we can live our dreams.

This is the change we seek in Africa. "Teach how to catch fish than given fish" Welcome Development to Impact the next Generations.

Monday Olu Farm manager labakulli farms at Demsa adamawa state

Nigeria economic boom lies in Agriculture, this is a task on agricultural rebirth and concerted efforts to revamp the agricultural sector to curb youth restiveness, starve off famine and ensure long – terms food security.
Agricultural mechanization is part of agro-industrial development, can play a key role which should be supported and financed to curb food insecurity , enhance large scale production and help Nigeria reach self sufficiency in rice production.
So as to ban total importation to gross exportation increase the country’s agricultural GDP, diversity revenue base , as dominant employer for labour, brings urbanization, contributing to local and national prosperity so as to realize the target to achieve Millennium Development Goals which is number ONE priority in the country.
where large quantities are imported to meet demand at huge cost, Africa Consumes a total of 11.6 million tonnes of milled rice per year and Nigeria consumers over 365 million naira of imported rice

This is a sure way to strengthen the African economy through the utilization of the great minds that abound herein. We will NEVER have to go beyond these shores for "greener" pastures. Let all well-meaning Africans pull resources and push projects such as this they will be better off for it seeing the Continent blossom in their twilight days. I believe in Africa!!!

Charles Obera Team Leader, People Management at EXTERRAN NIGERIA

I have known Dr. Elizabeth Adejo for over seven years to be a hardworking and entrepreneurial minded family physiccian who will spare no time in educating her patient on the need to stay healthy and maintain a healthy life style. Her passion for this very rear field in medical practice couple with the frightening statistics of deaths in middle aged/middle class to upper class population makes me believe that an investment in Dr. Adejo to carry on the campaign for healthy life style will be an investment is the right direction.
A healthy nation is a wealthy nation. Encouraging Dr. Adejo via sponsorship of her pet project will help save at least 10 Nigerians per annum from avoidable death caused by unhealthy life style and death caused out of ignorance.
I strongly recommend her to the considered for funding, sponsorship and in whatever way that the Tony Elumelu Foundation can assist in supporting this young and enterpreneurally minded Dr. Elizabeth Adejo.

Your sincerely
Charles Obera

Olalekan Peter Adare |MNSE | MIEEE | COREN Regd

I have known Seun as a brother and a friend, since 1994. He is smart, intuitive and shows a high level of commitment to his work. He has a way of easily motivating himself while motivating his peers. He exhibits a high level of intelligence both orally and practically. He is disciplined,efficient and organised in his work. He is very reliable, unassuming, full of potentials, a group performer and ready to learn from both his peers and superiors. Incisively, he is a man of vision who always sees how some things can be done differently with higher efficiency. Therefore,I recommend him for the Tony Elumelu Entrepreneurship Programme
