Seventeen students from Obafemi Awolowo University in Ile- Ife had a life-changing experience at a recent event organized by the Students’ Union body.

The event titled, “Financial Independence: A Creative and Innovative Mind,” held on March 31, 2023, at the Oduduwa Hall of the university, was aimed at equipping students with the necessary skills needed for financial liberation during their stay on campus and beyond.

One of the highlights of the event was the scholarship awards presented by guest speakers to indigent students selected from across various faculties of the institution.

In total, 17 students received scholarships that would pay their school fees for the 2022/23 session.

Oluneye Oluwole, an international author and serial entrepreneur, and Co-Founder of Dukiya Investment, and Lukman Shobowale were among the keynote speakers at the event. The Financial Secretary of the union, Joy Abiola, mentioned that the speakers and panelists provided invaluable insights on entrepreneurship and financial management, which were highly beneficial to the students.

During the panel session, the students had the opportunity to interact with successful entrepreneurs who shared their experiences and provided practical advice. The panelists included Oluseinde Oluwatosin, Daniel Otabor, Promise Isaac, Anozie Fortunate, Franklin Peters, Opeyemi Oluwafisayomi, and JoshOfLagos. They emphasised that with consistency and hard work, everyone could architect their financial independence journey and make it a reality.

Joy Abiola commended the guest speakers, panelists, and partners who contributed to the success of the event. Among those lauded were Ogbuehi Dillion, Anifat Oyedele, Olufemi Joshua, and Osunromade John.

The scholarship awards are expected to provide financial relief to the beneficiaries and enable them to focus on their academic pursuits without the added burden of tuition fees. This initiative by the Students’ Union body will undoubtedly have a positive impact on the lives of the students and contribute to their overall success.
