Business In Owerri: Vacancy Exists For You and My Experience

Dear CEO,

Wow! I was in Aba for my brother's wedding on Saturday and I had one of the best of times with family and friends. See my killer red outfit at the like? *CheekyGrin* 

Before then, I have been invited to speak on "Social media for leadership and political advocacy", so travelled to Owerri to join the crew of GOTNI.

So I will be speaking on Thursday and Friday but having a good learning session with the women participating.

Then I saw a business misnomer...

In Owerri, Imo state capital where I am,
yesterday taking a tour last night on our way to Jevinik Restaurant, I couldn't find a single shop to buy recharge card ...yes to top up my phone. The shops kept saying "the person that sells around here has closed" and this was just before 9pm.

Shock was my reaction! I couldn't understand how a supposed metropolitan city not be able to cater for the simplest of needs - which is a viable business in every part of Nigeria?

Questions, questions on my mind! What can be done to invigorate the spirit of enterprise in Owerri?

Do you think you can start a venture in Owerri?
