Our findings and Recommendations to Students/Youths in Oyo State and Beyond:
Having critically reviewed the concept behind this programme and the projects of the initiators in the past, especially her ‘Project Save the Hungry’ through which poor and hungry people were fed during the lockdown occassioned by COVID-19 in the year 2019, coupled with the wide acceptance of the Students Against Hunger Online Contest by critical stakeholders in students/youths constituency and the testimonies of already registered participants, we have no doubt that this programme would go along way in building young legitimate millionaires who will become employers of labour and be self-reliant financially, we hereby proudly endorse it and recommend that Oyo state Students and youths who are eligible to participate en mass, believing that our members will come out in flying colours at the contest.
We encourage our members to contact any of the leaders of the union for registration or visit www.richlifeafrica.ng.
Thank you all.
