Abuja socialite and Chairman of Tutu Group and lifestyle entrepreneur, Mr. Desmond James, popularly known as Tutu of Abuja, has been decorated with a Master Class Certificate in Entrepreneurship and Leadership at the prestigious GOTNI Leadership Centre in Abuja.
The ECOWAS Youth Ambassador, Tutu, was certified alongside other young CEOs on Thursday after a two-day mentorship training by some of Nigeria’s finest business and career coaches.
Whilst making his remarks at the GOTNI Leadership Center, Tutu expressed his profound gratitude to the organizers for putting up a top-class insightful session for young and enterprising individuals.
“I’m very happy about this new accomplishment of mine and for me, this is an open door for more opportunities for me and that alone gladdens my heart,” He said.
In the same vein, Tutu seized the opportunity to share his thoughts on the potential of young business owners in the economic space of Nigeria.
He said: “To be very honest, the future is bright for young entrepreneurs considering what we have three years back and what we have right now and their involvement and how startups are really thriving right now in Nigeria.
“I see our youths participating greatly in economic development. If you look at the Nigerian GDP, you will discover that Nigerian youths and young individuals play a significant role. Personally from what I have experienced, the youth are already piloting the future”, he said.
He went further to encourage young startups and businesses not to rest on their oars stating that young people have the ability to optimize and maximize opportunities that in turn lead to revolutionary development and innovation.
“Consistency and having a mastery of what you do is a major determinant for me as a person, for me, I think if young people like me can key into these principles, they will blossom in their endeavors”
Tutu is one of Abuja’s A-list socialites, a serial entrepreneur with chains of businesses in show promotion, night club management, logistics, laundry, and a host of others.
