Etisalat Inspires Nigerian Youth To Break Barriers

Lagos, Nigeria 14th August, 2015: Etisalat, Nigeria’s most innovative and youth friendly network, has encouraged Nigerian youths to look beyond their present circumstance and break any limitation that may be standing between them and their dream.

Gerald Osugo, Head, Marketing Communications, Etisalat Nigeria gave the advice when the Etisalat team visited and inspired a group of youths, who were undergoing Information Communication Technology (ICT) training at the Paradigm Initiative Network (PIN) Centre in Lagos, in commemoration of the 2015 United Nations International Youth Day on Wednesday.

While stressing that the rewards within the ICT space are remarkable, Osugo noted that Etisalat has been at the forefront of youth empowerment by promoting initiatives that help them reach their full potential.

“Etisalat has developed several platforms that are geared towards adding value to the youth. Last year a young Nigerian won the Etisalat Prize for Innovation when he came up with an innovative ICT solution called Exammate which helps students to study for examinations,” he disclosed.

The Programme Manager, Paradigm Initiative Nigeria (PIN), Oluwatosin Abolaji, said PIN is a social enterprise that connects Nigerian youths with ICT-enabled opportunities. He explained that the digital jobs industry is estimated to grow to about $5 billion global by 2018, therefore it is important to expose the youth to opportunities in digital/online jobs.
