One of Nigeria’s fastest growing sports betting companies, Paddy Paddy Bet is set to hold it’s inaugural Youth Empowerment Summit in Nigeria which is aimed at catering 100 young entrepreneurs and business minded individuals with great business ideas.
The summit was held on December 12 at the Jogor Events Centre and it was directed to spur the Nigerian youths into action to take charge of their entrepreneurial drive. The Nigerian sports betting company, Paddy Paddy bet has taken a bold step to empower no fewer than 100 Nigerian youths in Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria.
Paddy Paddy Bet boasts of varieties of games and sports on his sports betting platform which is available for mobile devices and desktop users. It was gathered that the Paddy Paddy Bet Youth Empowerment Summit held in Nigeria features resource persons from the private sector, successful young business entrepreneurs and Paddy Paddy Bet ambassadors who led the process of formulating a road-map that aims at fostering youth employ-ability and entrepreneurship in the country.
While speaking at a press conference held at Paddy Paddy bet headquarter office in Lagos, the media manager of the sports betting company, Mr. Issa Ahmed said that the Youth Empowerment Summit seeks to help the youths to start up their entrepreneurship journey and become self-employed.
According to Mr. Issa Ahmed, he said that there are lots of challenges facing the Nigerian youth. One of which is finding a decent employment for themselves. And since finding a decent job is not easy to come by, climbing out of poverty becomes increasingly difficult. With more than 65% of Nigeria’s economy being under the age of 35, it is important for young people to secure employment and become self-employed. Mr. Ahmed stated that Paddy Paddy Bet is focused on fighting poverty and the challenges associated with getting empowerment and securing employment in the country.
The 100 beneficiaries who will be selected among the attendees at the Paddy Paddy Bet Youth Empowerment Summit would be empowered by the sports betting company with a N50,000 each, which sums up to N5million (five million Naira) to boost and fuel their business ideas.
The sports betting company is giving back to the society; this is because a recent research has shown that Nigeria has taken over as a country with the highest number of poor people (meaning that the poverty rate in Nigeria is at the pinnacle), this is according to a report made by Brookings Institution.
On how to qualify and partake in the Paddy Paddy Bet empowerment, Mr Ahmed said that interested persons at the Paddy Paddy Bet Youth Empowerment Summit must be within the ages of 18 years to 35 years, and that they would need to register online at the company’s website at http://registration.paddypaddyblog.com in order to attend the Paddy Paddy bet inaugural youth empowerment summit. Also, the terms and condition of the sports betting company applies.
The Paddy Paddy Bet sports betting company is building a reputation for itself by empowering the Nigerian youths and assisting in reducing the rate of poverty in the country.
