The Youths-friendly Telecommunication, 9mobile, Celebrates Nigerian Youths
9Mobile, which is widely known as the Nigeria’s most innovative and youth-friendly telecommunication company, while celebrating the youths of Nigeria for exceptional resourcefulness and can-do spirit, urged them to continue to engage in ventures that would foster peace and development.
The telecommunication company also restated its commitment to empower the Nigerian youth through its support for education, arts, entertainment, sports, entrepreneurship and other avenues for youth development while joining the United Nations in the commemoration of the International Youth Day 2017, under the theme “Youth Building Peace”, as a way of encouraging the young people to contribute to prevention of conflicts, and promotion of social justice and sustainable peace.
Layi Onafowokan, the Head of Youth Segment, 9mobile, reiterated that the company places a high value on Nigerian youths due to their vibrancy and the important role they play in the development of the country.
He also mentioned that with the recent rebranding of 9mobile, the company is repositioned for a future that is powered by innovation, which the youths belong, and has re-established itself as the stout supporter of the Nigerian spirit of excellence.
He declared, “As a company that is passionate about empowering youths, we at 9mobile celebrate Nigerian youths as the world marks the United Nations International Youth Day. In line with the theme of this year’s International Youth Day, which is ‘Youth Building Peace’, we urge Nigerian youth to endeavor to promote sustainable peace as the country cannot prosper without peace.”
“On our part, 9mobile will continue to partner with the youths by supporting education, entrepreneurship, literature, photography, sports and other endeavors through which Nigerian youths can express their innate talents and abilities. We see greatness in Nigerian youths and by harnessing cutting edge technology to create innovative products and services, we will continue to provide avenues for the youth to achieve great feats.”
According to him, 9mobile has excelled in youth engagements from developing youth-centric products and services such as More Cliq (formerly easycliq), to organizing festivals of education, entertainment and sports in campuses across the country and engaging youths in skills acquisition and career counseling programmes.
Thus, in the bid to stay true to its corporate and brand values, 9mobile has retained all of its programmes that are targeted at the youths even after rebranding.
