This is the question I keep asking myself, why is it that big brand don’t think of supporting events outside Lagos? Yet sometimes, we promote their products without even getting any support from them.
“I guess, directors of this big brands in Nigeria, should look beyond Lagos. There’s so much opportunities to sell your products. Please support initiatives that promote youth empowerment Amb. Kingsley Amafibe”, he said.
