The Head of Youth Segment, Etisalat, Mr Elvis Daniel, on Friday said that the company would continue to empower the youth in line with its guiding principle.

Daniel, in a statement made available to newsmen in Lagos, said the company had scheduled its next `Cliqfest’ programme for the University of Lagos as part of efforts to achieve the objective.

He said that ‘Etisalat Cliqfest’ was an educational, entertainment and reward initiative targeted at Nigerian students and would be taken to UNILAG on Oct. 16.

According to him, the youth empowerment programme, which has been held in several tertiary institutions nationwide, is aimed at motivating Nigerian youths to keep pursuing their dreams.

“Etisalat Cliqfest is a festival of sports, entertainment and education designed to help Nigerian tertiary institutions produce confident students who are well equipped for the challenges of a rapidly-evolving world.

“We have packaged this programme in such a way that it affords the student a chance of an all-round development.
“It is our own way of giving them opportunities to identify with their passion, have fun while learning, and experience Etisalat’s youth product – Easycliq,’’ Daniel said.

He said that the student empowerment initiative was recently held in Ebonyi State University, where students won laptops, mobile phones, and other prizes.

According to him, a 400 Level Food, Science and Technology student, Ms Obiamaka Edokobi, won the grand prize of a brand new car during the raffle draw.

Daniel quoted Edokobi as thanking Etisalat for bringing Cliqfest to Ebonyi State University for the second time.

“The first event was great but I did not win; so I had been praying to win this car ever since I heard that Cliqfest would be back in our school.
“I am so happy that my dream came true today,’’ he quoted her as saying.(NAN)
