The March 8th Initiative is organized by the “Friends of Prof” to inspire and promote communal, entrepreneurial, and public-spirited endeavour within Nigeria in honour of the birthday of His Excellency, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, GCON.
Over the last two editions, the March 8th Initiative has provided opportunities for young people to expand and advance their businesses. Last year, the Initiative also recognized and rewarded exceptional health workers who, in an extremely difficult time, exhibited compassion, diligence, hard work and professionalism in carrying out their duties. In addition, the Initiative also provided free eye treatment and surgeries to thousands of people across the country

Project 774

The March 8th Initiative announces a community focused Business Plan Competition targeting young entrepreneurs and researchers who are able to exhibit the comparative advantage in their respective LGAs. With a thriving youth population in Nigeria, there is a need to identify the rich and diverse prospects available in each of the 774 LGAs as potential growth and entrepreneurship opportunities.
The Competition is designed to identify the comparative advantage inherent in the 774 LGAs in Nigeria, identify entrepreneurs that recognize the opportunities with a plan to harness them, and encourage the development of innovative, community-driven ideas with potential for expansion, and increase community-based enterprises. The competition opens on Tuesday, March 8, 2022, and closes at 11:59pm on Wednesday, March 30, 2022.
