Speaking exclusively to JirolTV at a grand graduation ceremony held at the Governor’s office in Ado Ekiti, Ogungbemi expressed his conviction that true development materializes when individuals are equipped with the requisite skills for personal growth and advancement. He emphasized that community development is a shared responsibility, urging all stakeholders to actively participate and not solely rely on government intervention.

The successful culmination of this endeavor was made possible through a fruitful partnership with Interweave Solutions International, a distinguished non-governmental organization headquartered in the United States of America. Over a dedicated period of three months, the organization rigorously trained the graduates in a spectrum of business acumen, encompassing business proposal drafting, meticulous bookkeeping, artful product packaging, and effective advertising techniques, among other vital developmental skills.

Prince Ogungbemi attributed his profound motivation for this initiative to his unwavering commitment to uplift market traders, small and medium-scale entrepreneurs (SMEs), and youthful visionaries from the shackles of poverty to the realm of prosperity. In a resounding call to action, he encouraged the graduates not to perceive the conclusion of their training as an endpoint, but rather as a fresh beginning. Furthermore, he assured continuous governmental support in fostering global connections and facilitating opportunities for Ajoni LCDA, engaging international communities, sponsors, and donor agencies to alleviate the pervasive grassroots poverty.
