Mr Ayeni Adekunle, the Founder of BHM Group, was the keynote speaker at the fair, and he shared his personal story and career experience to admonish and prepare the graduating students for what awaits them in future.

Speaking on the need for youths to be patriotic and passionate about Nigeria, Ayeni said, “Whether you remain in the country or you move out of Nigeria, you need to contribute to solving problems Nigeria is experiencing.”
The fair provided opportunities for students to secure spots for internships and job placement with potential employers. Participating companies had meaningful interactions with students and networked with other companies at the fair.
