PAL Pension has launched a youth-focused campaign tagged ‘NextU’ across five universities in Nigeria.
The campaign is the CSR initiative of PAL Pensions focused on providing knowledge and guidance for ‘Creating The Future,’ to young people on career, investment and life choices.
The firm revealed that Olusola Amusan, Tomi Balogun, Seyi Law, Shola Akinlade, Otto Orondaam, and Kunle Idowu (Frank Donga) were among the more than 10 speakers who spoke to over 11,000 students of the University of Lagos, University of Benin, University of Port Harcourt, Obafemi Awolowo University and Ahmadu Bello University.
The speakers and panellists who came from various backgrounds representing financial literacy, investment, employability, career growth, entrepreneurship and art/creativity, gave the students’ tips on how to be successful in their career and business, manage funds and invest wisely with small funds.
Speaking to the students of the University of Lagos, the Managing Director, PAL Pensions, Morohunke Bammeke, was quoted to have said: “The vision of PAL Pensions is to be the best PFA by creating value. PAL Pensions is that company that will always add value to you.”
She further averred that making money was not enough, preserving and investing wisely is what makes one wealthy.
She encouraged the students to commit to lifelong learning to create sustainable success and charged them to go out and create the future.
The event, targeted at young, social media savvy, forward-thinking students interested in not just career after graduation but also entrepreneurship was well attended by students in the participating institutions.
Participants not only got the chance to learn from the experiences of the panellists, but they also got an opportunity to win fantastic prizes by taking part in the #SellYourself competition.
“PAL Pensions is always interested in ways to impact the society positively,” the Head, Brand Management and Corporate Communications, Sunmisola Mark-Okoma said.
