Hello everyone,

Opportunities will come and go, but if you do nothing about them, so will you. – Richie Norton

Don’t let these opportunities elude you, you never know when your big break arrives. Take necessary actions!


The Nigerian Project: The Untapped Power of Citizens in Governance


Joyed Up Conference


Ibadan Social Media 2017

This is aimed at bringing together all active social media users of all ages to exploit the benefits of social media, learn, interact and network. We hope to reach out to the youths who by statistics are the largest users of social media as well as the older generation who embrace social media or who by chance depend on it for their businesses or personal development.
It will take place on Saturday 11th of November, 2017 at Lead City High School, Jericho, Ibadan from 10am. There will be two major sessions. We would have the panel discussion segment where speakers well versed in the social media field lead discussions in pertinent areas.

The second segment is the interaction/networking segment where individuals can interact with one another and businesses too can get to meet their followers and customers. It will climax with a party and there will be food, drinks, games and karaoke as side attractions. There will also be a google training for SMEs and individuals alike.


The event is powered by CONNECT IBADAN, VOZ EMPIRE and PAUL ALASIRI. It is fully endorsed and supported by Oyo State Ministry of Youths and Sports and Oyo State Ministry of Information, Culture and Tourism.
