Oladipo Popoola: Letter to Emefiele

Alt text
Dear Mr Godwin Emefiele,

My story is like a dream. I started a logistics company with one motorbike in Ibadan but one evening I had an accident with a Keke. I broke my leg and had to stay in the hospital for 3 months. And the worst part was that my motorbike was badly damaged. By the time I had healed some bad boys had stolen the bike where it was parked in my compound. It was like the saddest day of my life. Where would I start from? When I went to the bank to withdraw my last ten thousand Naira, the bank officer told me about the Youth Entrepreneurship Development Programme and she said I should apply. ] I applied, I got the money and I even changed my business. I learnt how to become a social media manager when I was in the hospital. You can see what my business is like now. I have 28 clients who are paying me to manage their businesses accounts for them. Thank you very much, Sir.
