The Head, Osogbo Branch of BoI, Dr Emmanuel Ojoowuro, speaking to news men during the event advised the youths to be innovative and begin to make meaningful contributions to the society.
Emmanuel urged the youth to start thinking of how they could assist the society by providing solutions to numerous challenges facing their immediate environment.
He said, “Youths should start thinking of they can contribute to the society. They can’t remain on the same spot for ever. They are our future and they should start creating, adding value, innovating and start developing their ideas.
“Bank of Industry has loan packages for youths who want to obtain loans and the process is not hard. We treat our youth differently because they are just coming up. We have different templates for them, so that they can be able to access the loans. Any youth who has value- adding project can come for loan in our bank.”
