Between a Beneficiary and AYEEN Organisers on Funding SMEs

The Africa’s Young Entrepreneurs Empowerment Nigeria (AYEEN) had their conference – “Networking with the giants”, last Thursday which was also used to award the winner of the AYE TV show. The event recorded massive turn out of applicants of the AYE fundings, coupled with important dignitaries in Nigeria and Entertainers.

In view of all that happened, one of the beneficiaries in person of Teniola Esan, has a different view as regards the Organisation and her President – Summy Smart Francis. In what we discovered as un-pleasant and ‘politrics’ according to Teni, as well as most of the commenters of his post on social media, below is his summary as we ASK FOR YOUR VIEWS on his acclaimed thoughts. What do you think?


The AYE 2017 “Networking with Giants Conference” was simply a night of politics that was played with young aspiring Nigerian entrepreneurs as the pawns. A very fine show of the true position of the Nigerian youth today – mere tools for political ends while the youths themselves return home empty handed after the politics have been played.

We sincerely appreciated the presence of the dignitaries present especially the likes of Fela Durotoye who gave a compelling talk about the future of Nigeria and the ABC’s of getting it right for the sake of the youths upon who the future depends. We also appreciate the likes of Patrick Utomi and others who shared their wealth of experience in the Nigerian business terrain, likewise the warmth of Mrs. Folorunsho Alakija who has been grand matron of the event for 3 years running. But what we saw last night was a sham!

Please share this post until it goes viral. Mrs. Folorusho Alakija (grand matron of AYE), Chief. Bola Ahmed Tinubu (grand patron of AYE), Fela Durotoye, Pat Utomi, Sen. Ben Murray Bruce, former Vice President Atiku Abubakr, Fidelity Bank Managing Director and all the other dignitaries at the event too numerous to mention deserve to know hear our feedback since we were not given audience that night.

We wish to state that the Nigerian youths will no longer be used as pawns to political ends. We hereby urge the above named distinguished citizens of Nigeria to caution the activities of the management of the Africa Young Entrepreneurs platform and its founder Mr. Sunmi Smart Francis.

We shall be seeking redress via due process soon.

(Kindly share on every social media platform available, tag anyone who attended the AYE 2017 conference and tag bloggers and news outlet willing to publish this piece)
