Firm pledges support for Nigerian youths
Expand Global Industries Limited (EGIL) has reaffirmed its commitment to supporting youth-oriented programmes especially in Nigeria.
Chairman and Managing Director of EGIL, Rajat Kapur, stated this in Lagos when the firm hosted the Nigerian Idol Season Six Top 11 led by Kingdom Kroseide, the Season 6 winner.
This was the second time that winners visited the company. They visited during the competition while still contesting to create series of videos themed ‘My WaW moment’, which was widely shared on social media.
Kapur said it was a big pleasure to have the winners at their facility and that the company supports the show to explore the creativity of Nigerian creative artists.
He said EGIL, a subsidiary of Henkel, being a brand known for its quality and regular technological improvements will continue to look for avenues to support youths and have a transparent partnership with them.
“Sponsoring the show, as we are also doing to the Big Brother Naija (BBN) is a part of our social initiative to support the youths and the local economy. It is like our Peer-to-Peer initiative, which started with two persons in 2019 with the plan to grow it to 5,000 persons by year-end, where we wanted to create street smart entrepreneurs across the country and reduce the number of unemployed people,” he said.
