By Pelumi Olaleye
Come November 5, Ifaki Ekiti would be hosting Nigerians who have made impacts in community development from across the country.
According to the Ifaki Progressive Union(IPU) ,publicity unit, the award and recognition is to draw attention to the crying need for focused grassroots investment by high net worth Nigerians, including corporates.
The town believes that by investing in local communities, the pressure on the urban areas from rural-urban migration would be relaxed. While youths and other categories of Nigerians would benefit immensely from initiatives in different aspects of the local economy, reducing crimes and aberrant behavior. Those to be honored are top notch investors in technology, education, health, manufacturing and other sectors. The organizing committee would be releasing the final list as soon as all protocol requirements have been met.
This year’s Ifaki Day promises to set a new standard with several innovative Programmes billed to engage and excite both locals and visitors. This years event will feature Carnival like Private Hospitality Booths(PHB). The booths are available to corporates and individual stakeholders who can use the exclusivity provided to host and cater to their invitees in addition to marketing their products to the thousands of visitors who usually come from far and wide. Many stakeholders and business interests are already showing great interest in the innovative products and organizers are confident that the concept will be a sellout. The concept also provides opportunity for corporate and family branding of the booths at affordable grassroots rates
Commenting, Chairman of Heavy Liftings Nigeria, and head of the organizing committee, Dayo Adetunmbi disclosed that the event would just be a tip of the ice-berg.
