The summit will feature successful young business entrepreneurs, private sector representatives and Paddypaddybet ambassadors, who will lead the process of formulating a roadmap that seeks to foster youth employability and entrepreneurship in Nigeria.

Paddypaddybet is giving back to the community with the recent research showing Nigeria has now taken over as the nation with the highest number of extremely poor people, according to a report by Brookings Institution. Speaking at the press conference with newsman at the company’s headquarter in Lagos, the media manager Issa Ahmed, stated that ‘’the Nigerian youth are facing challenges, and finding decent employment and climbing out of poverty with more than 65% of the population being under the age of 35, securing employability and self-employment for young people, achieved through innovative approaches, is be the best weapon Paddypaddybet wants to fight against poverty and the numerous associated challenges in the country.’’
Speaking further Ahmed speaks on what and how to participate in the empowerment;
