Kayode Fayemi, Governor of Ekiti State Nigeria Speaks at the Emerging Leaders Conference #ELCAbuja: Full transcript



THE STAKES AND THE IMPERATIVES
I am delighted to be here today to share my thoughts with leading lights among the successor generation of leaders in out great country, on the stakes and imperatives we currently face in our quest for peace and sustainable development.
Let me start by summing up the dilemma that confronts every thinking Nigerian that genuinely cares about his or her country. The state of governance and the quality of our institutions are poor. Do we refrain from public service knowing that our governance is a cesspool of graft and incompetence or do we engage in it risking among other things, our hard earned reputations in a clime where the occupation of any public office is seen as a passport to illicit enrichment?    
         
To refrain from public service may preserve our pristine reputations. However, when good and competent people refuse to engage in public service, the bad and the incompetent take their places and we all suffer for it. Thus, the proposition that politics and public service are the preserve of knaves becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Government is seen as a cesspool of corruption and incompetence precisely because it is dominated by the corrupt and the incompetent. It is dominated by these types because men and women who possess the intelligence and integrity that we direly need in these places have rejected public service. It is their very rejection of public service that enables the knaves to take over and consolidate.

Those of us who have reflected deeply on this paradox also realize an ancillary truth. When we forego the chance to serve, we are morally barred from complaining about the conduct of those who have taken up the responsibility that we refused, however atrocious their performance. To do so would be to engage in hypocrisy. Society abhors a vacuum. If decent men and women that possess the requisite competence and character do not actively take responsibility to propel the society and shape its institutions with progressive values, others with low quality motives and mentalities will seize the reins with devastating consequences.

THE MAKING OF TOUCH COUTOURE: SEASON 1



 It started like a dream, a dream that turned into a burning desire, desire that erupted this wonderful passion, a passion to make the best of designs, to explore the unlimitless possibilities of her creativity, a passion for fashion... 

This is the story of how the unique brand Touch Couture was born....
Unbelievable, that's the word she used. The one word that summed up all her emotions, tears falling from her eyes, a standing ovation, cameras, lights and models surrounded her. It was the moment she has been waiting for all her life, the one moment she's always dreamt of, that moment when an ordinary girl becomes an extraordinary lady, a fashion designer.
 
As she stood there, it all came back to her, the first design, the
first customer, the first sale, indeed she has come a long way. "Titi,
Titi, we can leave the stage now" Oreva whispered bringing her back to reality.
"Oh yeah" Titi said, realizing where she was.
"Yessss, this is it. You've done girl, you've done it" Oreva screamed
as they got back stage. A tall dark girl with slender features, pretty and adventurous. A friend of Titi's and one of her models. With long legs that are undoubtedly straight, Oreva once referred to her legs as her selling point in the modeling world.
"Thanks dear, I couldn't have done it without you guys" Titi said, obviously still overwhelmed by the reception her designs got, considering that this is her first major runway show. "this is unbelievable, I still can't believe I just had my first runway show"

"You better believe it dear, congrats sweetie" a light skinned lady said as she walked toward her. "You've worked hard and you deserve the recognition". Chioma, a beautiful lady with average height and an infectious smile. People often mistake her for the actress Monalisa Chinda and she always refuses the compliment, insisting that she looks nothing like the actress. She's Titi's best friend. "Chioma" Titi screamed as they hugged. "I can't believe you made it"
"I wouldn't miss it for anything" she said smiling
"Awww thanks" Titi said with tears welling in her eyes. Chioma wiped the tears with her handkerchief
"This is the start of greater things to come" Chioma prayed as she always does in moments like this.
"Amen" chorused Titi and Oreva
"We will attend more shows and the label will grow in favorable heights in Jesus name"
"Amen" they all said, still laughing. "Thanks guys, you're the best" Titi said
"Touch Couture has just debuted and I owe it all to you girls, thanks for the encouragement, support and never giving up on me" they hugged and stood there for a short while.
"Well let's finish up here and we'll go celebrate" Chioma said as she broke the group hug. She was beginning to cry too. An hour later they were in Titi's apartment with some friends. They partied and danced the night away.

THE SOCIAL MEDIA JOB FAIR ™ SET TO EXPAND JOB FRONTIERS: ABUJA INVASION IS JULY 25 – 26TH, 2014



The biggest challenge of the teeming population of young people in Nigeria is unemployment and sometimes it is said to be “unemployability”.
Interestingly the need for the use of social media to provide customer service functions, position brands globally and provide information on the go, has become increasingly necessary.

Most indigenous organisations are however yet to understand the power of social media and thus lagging behind in leveraging it to maximise their brand impact. When they eventually realise the need, there will be a double challenge due to a dearth of well taught social media users who can be employed to work within such organisations to carry out these functions.

The Social Media Job Fair™ is positioned to explain these paradigms while matching corporate/ enterprise social media needs with professionally trained integrated social media users and also espousing the opportunities that abound within this sphere as a job sector that can provide jobs for millions in Nigeria and across Africa soon.
