- How it all started…
- On the 29th day of October, 2013, i was motivated to launch the BWDPC - BBM Weekly Display Picture Contest on my BBMARENA Social Network.
At that period, it was all about entertainment. On a weekly basis, several contestants often submit their best BBM Display Pictures and afterwards mobilize friends and fans for votes. The contestant with the highest number of votes often cart away with monthly data subscription package (of any desired telecom network), with the winner’s picture being modeled on the website homepage. Nevertheless, BBMARENA Technologies Ltd ran this programme for several months until BBM faded out of the social network market.
- On the other way around, the recent realities in Nigeria are sending us a strong signal that the Nigerian youths should look inward and see what they can offer their country rather than waiting for what the government can do for them. The vibrant youths of the nation can actualize this goal by standing up to define and interpret the true meaning of the Nigerian creed as laid down by her founding fathers. Also, by maximizing the strength in our ethnical diversities in solving Nigeria’s recurring challenges rather than being engrossed with the lucrative potentials in the already occupied entertainment industry.
To this effect, I have innovated a national development programme; an online essay contest, specifically with the goal to provide a participatory platform for the Nigerian youths in the development of the nation’s economy.
JONDEC – Jawolusi Oluwaseun National Development Essay Contest is a national development programme channeled towards replicating the Asian Tigers’ economic success in Nigeria.
This programme will also serve as a platform for Nigerian Youths to foster the application of economic access as a national integration index. The essay topics shall focus on the market-led, interventionalist and the state-led economic development model by the means of a ‘guided capitalism’ economic system in Nigeria. This will definitely blaze a trail for an industrial revolution in Nigeria.
The vision of JONDEC is to foster the democratization of ICT education in Nigeria. This is one of goals written in the national development book, titled; “THE NICTIP INITIATIVE; A SUSTAINABLE TRANSFORMATIONAL AGENDA IN NIGERIA’. The goal of this written work is to foster the establishment of a National ICT Industrial Park in each Nigerian State via PPP & AMP Programmes.
The book accompanied with its online forum will soon be unveiled. In a nutshell, the forum is created to enhance the interactivity of the NICTIP book’s topics of discussion.
It shall also serve as an interactive platform for Nigerians who are committed to the all round tranfromation of the Nation.
These initiatives will not only give Nigerians a leverage to contribute to the development of the Nation, it will also encourage national unity amongst them.
JONDEC is set to commence by the last quarter of the year - Deo-Volente!.
