“Delta will need at least 4 million tailors to key into that market, start getting ready now. Everybody in Africa is hoping that Nigeria is where they will sell their market.”

The Chief Job and Wealth Creation Officer, Prof. Eric Eboh, at the business management training said, “everyone was created with a unique potential, therefore, in order to achieve a successful business enterprise, apply self- discovery, self- activation, leadership of self, passion and determination.

“To have a successful business enterprise, you have to be intentional, calculated, apply positive energy and take responsibility,” he said.

The wealth creation boss advised them to imagine or visualise the kind of business enterprise they want to have many years from now.

The resource person, Pastor Afolabi Adun, advised participants to leave the comfort of their zone and take samples of their work to places.
