SENIOR Special Adviser to Abia State governor on Public Communication, Mr. Sam Hart and Managing Director of SLOT, Mr. Nnamdi Ezegbo, have urged Nigerian youths to use ingenuity as a solution to the various challenges affecting them.
The duo spoke at the launch of the MTN Foundation Scholars Alumni and Conference held in Owerri.
The conference would bring together the graduate beneficiaries of the MTN Foundation Scholarship Schemes Scholarship for the Science and Technology Students (STSS) and Scholarship Scheme for the Blind Students (SSBS).
The conference will also hold in Abuja and Lagos with Tonye Cole, Bolanle Austin-Peters and Chika Ofili confirmed as speakers for the locations.
According to Ezegbo: “My strategy for operating SLOT is to create solutions. The environment will never be perfect. There is no perfect time for you to strike at success. Every time is the best but you need to understand the times. SLOT means Solution, Leadership, Opportunity and Technology. These are the four principles that drive our existence. The entrance of Tecno into Nigeria was a solution from SLOT to get Nigerians to have a single phone that has multiple SIM. Tecno was created to meet a need and it has become the backbone of my riding to success.”
Also speaking on leadership, he said: “It about understanding yourself. You need to create an environment to continue to learn, while at the same time you must identify the unique opportunities you hope to solve with technology,”
