An NGO based in Enugu state, the South Saharan Social Development Organisation is organizing the first ever Innovators and Inventors fair and prize in the South East. Tagged the ‘ Showcasing the Can-do Igbo spirit: Innovations and Inventions from the South East, the event under its Ola ndi Igbo (Jewels of the East) programme will showcase over 25 original inventions and innovations from people either from the South East or resident in the South East, shortlisted from over 100 applications.

This event with the support of Life Lager Beer, the Ford Foundation, MTN, Ellington Company, Fidelity Bank, Radio Nigeria, NOTAP and many others will take place on the 18th of December from 10 am to 4pm at the Oakland Centre Enugu and is open to the public free of charge.  In addition to a N1million Grand prize and other consolation prizes, the shortlisted inventors will receive training on patenting, financial management, how to run a business, marketing and branding.

According to South Saharan’s Programme Manager Barr. Onyinye Nwachukwu, the event is part of the organisation’s response to the recession and to halt the disregard for innovation in the country which has been the trend since independence despite the abundance of scientists and technologists and instead encourage innovation and entrepreneurship in Nigeria.

It is expected that the fair will attract over 1,000 visitors from within and outside of Nigeria including people from the private sector, investors, government officials, the diplomatic community and the general public.

  6. Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future
    but I’m having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your design and style
    seems different then most blogs and I’m looking
    for something completely unique. P.S Apologies
    for being off-topic but I had to ask!
