The Governor of Abia State, Dr. Theodore Orji, will be the Chief Host of the Empower Nigeria Road Show on the 25th July in Umuahia Abia State, southeast Nigeria. The Empower Nigeria Road Show is on a national campaign of wealth creation and opportunities which are targeted at youths, women and entrepreneurs across board.
The Empower Nigeria boasts of being the fastest growing network of entrepreneurs in Nigeria currently with 55,000 members, and still growing. The initiative was designed to take the rocket science out of starting, operating and owning a micro, small or medium business.
The Abia State leg of the Empower Nigeria Road Show will see thousands of clusters being created for youths and women businesses in which the Empower Nigeria Team will support these groups with access to funding, training and certification, bankable business projects, as well as an entrepreneurial tool kit.
Empower Nigeria Initiative is led by Nicholas Okoye who is its founder and Chief Executive Officer, and he also doubles as the Chief Executive of Anabel Group, a conglomerate involved in real estate, technology, telecommunications, education and entertainment.
Nicholas is known for the annual Nigeria Leadership Summit event which is hosted in Lagos and for which over 4,000 micro, small and medium business owners gather to discuss strategy, support and empowerment.
He was a onetime Chief Strategy Officer for the Nigerian Stock Exchange and was once the youngest Executive Director of a quoted company listed on the Nigerian Stock Exchange.
