Nigeria@60: Joseph La‘shakara to support small businesses with giveaways

 A frontline appointee of His Excellency, Governor Ayade of Cross River State, Mr. Joseph Edet, known and addressed by his business brand name “La'shakara”, has announced a giveaway template where young entrepreneurs can key in and win cash prizes.

Joseph Edet, a young promising Crossriverians who currently sits as the Managing Director of Summit Hills and doubles as the Acting Managing Director of Garment Factory took to his social media handles to announce a freebie competition for giveaways where he plans to give out cash prizes to support business ideas and existing small scale businesses in Calabar.

He wrote;

As our Country Nigeria turns 60, I am alerted to the needs of MSMEs (Micro and Small Businesses) within Calabar and beyond, the need to provide a shoulder for them to lean on by giving life to their ideas, which for want of resources cannot florish.

I recall the challenges that nearly suppressed the emergence of my brand, The La‘shakara–Culture, the journey so far and the success story we now see as a leading fashion and branding company in the South of Nigeria.

Today, I make bold to say that I started that brand with just N10,000.

Thus, as a way of support, I will be giving out financial support to boost SMEs from time to time (both starters and existing businesses).

This Independence, we will start with a drive in Calabar;

First prize of N60,000 (plus other gift items)

Second prize N30,000 (plus other gift items)

Third Prize (N20,000) and 

N5,000 each to 20 Persons who will participate in an exercise of simply explaining in clear terms how N60,000 can help them START OR GROW THEIR BUSINESS.

Please note that all entry for this competition must be made on or before the night of 30th September, 2020.

A careful selection and audit will be done by a Team of Impartial Judges and Winners will be announced on the 1st of October, 2020.

Winners will get their prizes at the point of their business or residence on the 1st of October, 2020 to mark a glamorous celebration of our giant strides as a Country for 60 years.

Please for the purpose of verification, participants are advised to be resident in Calabar.

As part of the process, a shortlist of 20 persons from the participants will be contacted to post a 1 minutes video, pitching their business ideas as would be announced.

The competition is indiscriminately open to all persons, regardless of tribe, religion or skin color.


Joseph Edet E.
