NIGERIA’S ABSENCE AT THE ENACTUS WORLD CUP: AND SO IT CAME TO PASS….

“And it came to pass
that our saviour gave us a gift of tragedy
for which we are too dumb-struck to find a melody.”

Funso Aiyejina

 

Approximately a week ago, I got this message via Whatsapp:

 Dear Enactus Team Leaders,

We all by now are familiar with the issues of Nigeria exemption from participating at the Enactus world cup due to an outbreak of the Ebola Virus Disease in Nigeria.

This comes as an update to the issues as there is a new development. Following our continuous engagement with Enactus Headquarters on this issue, we have now received an update from Enactus headquarters that the decision to exempt Nigeria from the Enactus World Cup 2014 was reached by Enactus Headquarters and not by the Chinese government.

With this new information, it is our opinion that it is only fair that the same decision be taken by Enactus Headquarters on the team representing the United States, the Texas State University, as Texas is currently battling with the deadly Ebola Virus.

We sympathize with the EKSU team about this as we understand the trauma the members have been through. We also understand the disappointment you must all feel at this time and that may want to air your views. This is understandable as it is only natural. However, please let us desist from the use of obscenities or derogatory words, terms and phases.

You may make your voice heard by posting the question below on the Enactus Headquarters social media platforms:

How is it that Nigeria is not participating at the Enactus World Cup 2014 on the grounds of Ebola whereas, the United States of America is participating?#EnactusWorldCup or #Enactus

CONGRATULATIONS TO ENACTUS TEAM IN EKITI STATE UNIVERSITY.

First of all, I want to congratulate the ENACTUS Team in Ekiti State University. (ENACTUS EKSU)

The National Competition was a success, and I missed it. ;(

I actually did, and I know that I missed a lot. I have been trying to see if I could get an interview with the ENACTUS EKSU team, but I wasn’t able to. I am still working on that.

The other option is to upload some images from the Competition. The problem is, I didn’t go. And I did want to copy pictures from their facebook page. I mean, what is the point? Click here if you want to see everything you missed

Okay, I stole that one picture from the facebook page. This post will be totally bland without it.

P.S Kadpoly came second. See their interview here. Congratulations!!!

Have a Lovely Week Ahead….

YOU SHOULD BE A PART OF SOMETHING AS BIG AS THIS

If you have been following my previous posts, you probably have been wondering how you can be a part of something as big as this. Yes, you can and it is just a few clicks away. Enactus Nigeria presents the E – challenge. This way ‘you (get) a chance to be engaged, be a part and eventually get the opportunity to select that Enactus team that you feel has been able to identify the most meaningful opportunity, taken effective action and made the most progress’.

I think your support would go a long way in encouraging these teams. These are young people who are working very hard to provide solutions to problems with the aim of changing lives. I wish I could share all the projects in this single post, but I can’t. I have picked two projects from two universities – Project LET from Usman Danfodio University Sokoto and Project 360 from the University of Lagos.
