The Chairman and CEO of Arowolo Group of company, Prince Jimi Odimayo has expressed optimism in having a permanent centre for the two weeks BEMORE Summer Bootcamp for Girls, an Initiative of the First Lady of Ondo State, Chief Betty-Anyanwu Akeredolu.
Odunayo said this while commending the efforts of the founder when he visited the ongoing bootcamp in Owerri, on his way from the Chieftaincy conferment ceremony of Her Excellency.
He described the initiative as laudable for breeding future female leaders who would change the narrative and brigde Gender-gap in science, Technology and Mathematics, and entrepreneurial skills for economic growth.
According to him, it would sustain the programme if it could have a permanent centre to make it a true university of life.
Prince Odimayo enjoined the girls to be focused and make judicious use of the opportunity in order to make the founder proud, while assuring his continuous support for the BEMORE initiative to achieve its goals for Nigerian girls.
“The testimony I saw about a young girl who installed solar panel in her Community is fantastic; if not for this Programme it wouldn’t have been possible for her to showcase the skill and this Programme is divine and will expose our girls early to what they’re endowed with.
“I encourage you all to be focused, so that at the end you can give thanks to God, and Her Excellency who put this up in order to discover talents and with what I saw here today it’s certain that BEMORE has come to stay in Imo State”, he said.
The Senior Special Assitant to the Governor on Gender, Research and Documentation, Mrs Temitope Daniyan on behalf of Her Excellency appreciated him for identifying with BEMORE and for his kind gesture in supporting the programme.
Also, Hon Dele Ologun also commended the efforts of the First Lady for initiating such a life-changing initiative to help parents and guardians to instil some virtues in their children and wards, outside the formal classroom wall.
