Goodluck Jonathan Launches Nyenet.com to fund startups & win the youth vote
We won’t discuss politics here because we know your vote is your right but we think President Goodluck Jonathan’s new Youth Entrepreneurship Strategy (YES) and the Nigeria Youth Entrepreneurship Network (NYENET.COM) is a move to get him popular among the youth even though it might be late for any swing votes.
Nyenet.com, launched under the YES strategy is a public private partnership between the Federal Government of Nigeria, its Ministries, Departments and Agencies and the EMPOWER NIGERIA Initiative; the Anabel Group.
According to Goodluck, Nyenet.com is designed to help the youth and women to access entrepreneurship and empowerment programs supported by the Federal, State and Local Governments as well as investors from the private sector. Users can also apply for any government entrepreneurship empowerement program online.
Though the president says his government has created 5.4 million jobs for Nigerians others think its just a move to influence the youth vote due to its timing.
