Amidst the harsh economic realities presently being experienced in the country, over 1000 Nigerian youths in the last 7 days have taken to creative writing to empower themselves intellectually and financially.
Emilinks #MyDoorStory competition launched on Monday 8th of August 2016 to engage Nigerian youths intellectually in an online competition that involves writing a short story about doors.
The #MyDoorStory competition which is the brainchild of Mr. Solomon E. Nwadiogbu, the MD of Emilinks Limited is giving away N3 million in 30 days to 300 creative Nigerian youths. Daily, the sum of N10,000 will be given out to 10 Nigerian youths over the next 30 days.
When asked what inspired this initiative, Mr. Solomon had this to say;
“Money orientation must die in Nigeria. People must return to the right core values. Money is not value. Let us remove the value we place on money and place value on values.”
“Through this initiative, I want to empower Nigerian youths to see that there’s always money out there to be made if only they can unleash their creativity and focus on adding value to the society. Because this is the only way to rise above poverty and unemployment.”
So far over the last 7 days, 70 Nigerian youths have each won N10,000 as a result of unleashing their creativity to orientate Nigerians about the significance of doors.
