In a few words, tell us why you decided to become an entrepreneur. What led you down the
path to pursuing your own business?

1-The unemployment rate, in Nigeria is currently alarming and that is one of the major reasons
for the high rate of crime in Nigeria and because I believe the task to liberate my father land
should not be left to the government alone I have taken it upon myself to contribute as much as I
can with what I have available in terms of professional engineering experience to combat poverty
and unemployment having work for about 13 years . I am down this path having because i want
to provide engineering solutions to other SME and other multinational with a view of combating
unemployment and making profit .2-I am in this business to bridge the gap and discourage
capital flight I noticed during my work days, heavy duty production machines used by most
manufacturing company rely on expatriates for the installation and maintenance of their
machines, this service my company can provide 3- I will bridge that gap of poor quality pipe
fitting and plumbing jobs done by most unskilled pipe fitters and plumbers
