The Labour Party Presidential candidate Peter Obi, has gifted a young woman identified as Gimba Sophia Emmanuel some money to enable her purchase an oven to start her business.
Recall, Obi during a press conference had struggled to hold back tears when speaking about the young women whom he said Nigeria had failed.
He stated that this was one of the many things he’d hoped to change as the president of the country by creating a scenario where young people could start businesses for themselves.

Obi in a Facebook post revealed that he’d redeemed his pledge to assist the young woman as he shared photos presenting her with a cheque for the money.
Today, I fulfilled my pledge to assist Ms Gimba Sophia Emmanuel in her aspiration to acquire an oven and start her baking and confectionery business. Interestingly, she had indicated that she would procure a Nigerian made oven, thus enhancing the value chain and putting into effect the production to consumption mantra.
