At the appreciation visit held at the company’s head office, Akinlaja thanked SIFAX Group for the support towards the last edition despite the harsh business environment occasioned by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. “We are here today to say thank you for your support. SIFAX Group has been the only brand that has supported The Next Titan show right from the first season and despite the outbreak of the coronavirus last year, the company still supported us. The impact of the show on young Nigerians is far-reaching”, he said.
On his part, Joshua Idiong, Season 7 winner, hailed the support given by SIFAX Group in actualising his business dreams. He said: “As a young entrepreneur, the support I got from SIFAX Group and other brands has really taken my business to the next level. Before winning the show, I was working with about 75 farmers in my oil processing plant. Right now, we are scaling our support to about 250 farmers and also introducing our palm oil product to the Lagos market and other parts of the country. We are also planning on exporting the product to other international markets too and have started building our own processing plant with the support received from the show”.
In his response, Barrister Ezekiel Ajewole, Executive Director/SSA to the GEVC, assured the Next Titan Crew of SIFAX Group’s support. “Dr. Taiwo Afolabi, the Group Executive Vice Chairman of SIFAX Group is a man interested in the growth and development of youths in Nigeria. I assure you that we will continue to support the show. I also want to urge the winner to make good use of the prize money in order to make us all proud”, he explained.
