Rivers-based poultry farmer wins Princewills Trust Help
A River State-based poultry farmer, Tekena Ovuru, has emerged winner of the Princewill Trust — Help The Hard Worker competition for the month of September.
The monthly competition was put together by the ‘hard-working team’ of the organisation, with the aim of encouraging hard work and empowering Rivers residents.
While presenting the cash award of N100, 000 to the winner, the founder, Prince Tonye Princewill said the aim of the Trust was simply to encourage ‘hard workers’ and move away from the mindset of entitlement.
He called on the winner to make judicious use of the money and “give others like him, the inspiration to do well, work hard and upgrade their business too.”
The monthly competition was organised by the non-governmental organisation for entrepreneurs, youths and Rivers State residents who are into micro-business ventures and all forms of hard work in the state.
After receiving his cash award, the winner, Ovuru, said: “I got to know about Princewill’s trust on Facebook. I’m a poultry farmer, the name of my farm is Ovuru and sons farms, I’m into broiler chicken rearing. I’m a graduate of Petrochemical Technology from the University of Port Harcourt. I also have a car which I use for bolt. I saw N100, 000 as the prize on Facebook.
“With this N100, 000, I will buy two cartons of chicken and at least seven bags of feeds for broilers,” he stated.
