    So it is “Free” but intended participants would still pay “N15,000” registration fees…? Really?

    hmmmm, why do i get the feeling that freebies always comes with a not-so free- strings attached?
    I like the idea of female empowerment but for me i would recommend empowerment through trading.

    It’s a great initiative but the registration cost is high considering the fact that,it’s a one day exhibition. Since it’s done in partnership with the federal government. Registration should be reduced to 5000 to really encourage young entrepreneurs.
