Soyinka, whose firm is one of the sponsors of the event, applauded the initiative behind the ceremony, saying that the future holds great potential for the Nigerian youths, both home and abroad, and also called for conscious efforts to channel their energy towards positive initiatives that will propel the nation and the continent to an enviable height.

He posited that Insurance should form a very pivotal aspect of whatever business venture any young entrepreneur decides to go into, as “the adoption of insurance for any business venture is the smartest decision that can ever be taken.”

He encouraged them to take time and educate themselves on the workings of insurance, and how it can help them protect their business at every point in time.The brain behind the initiative and Managing Director of MAYA Awards, Muyiwa Ademola, acknowledged Sovereign Trust Insurance for the encouragement and support given so far to his organisation, and called on other corporate organisations to take interest in matters that concerns the youths, as they are the stars of the future. He admonished the youths to constantly develop themselves, and abstain from living in pity or waiting on the government or the society to give directions to their dreams.
