Aso Villa Entrepreneurial Demo to attract and sponsor new business ideas

Ok this is something we must surely  be interested in.
The president who is very concerned about the fact that some of us do not have a job and as such have enough free time to criticise him on Facebook and Twitter have finally decided to solve this problem( nor fear he is not banning Twitter and facebook) he have finally decided that some of us get good business ideas and as such he would like to sponsor some of this ideas.
The news went like this:
   "As part of the Federal Government’s agenda to diversify the economy and create jobs by stimulating the tech start-up space, President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo will be hosting the Aso Villa Demo Day 2016 (AVDD2016); an initiative of the Presidency of the Federal Republic of Nigeria set to celebrate the best of Nigerian technology, creativity and entrepreneurship,as well as showcase Nigeria’s innovative spirit to a global audience. The event scheduled to hold on June 23, 2016 in Lagos and July 28, 2016 in Abuja brings together the brightest start-ups from across the country as they pitch to an audience of Venture Capitalists, Angel Investors, key decision makers and other influential businesspersons"

This is part of the many entrepreneurial schemes that I hinted last year will be coming on board this year under this new government  in some of this posts,
Central Bank of Nigeria floats loan for Small Business.
CBN to focus on policies to develope small scale businesses in Nigeria.
SMEDAN promise to seek for loan for brilliant business ideas.
Will Buhari's Government favour Nigeria's Small Businesses?
Right  now, the people in charge of things, the powers that be are now looking for different ways to get you occupied with something doing so that you will have less time to go Facebook and Twitter to complain about their actions or inactions ( e make sense abi?) everybody get to win in this case. 

"Interested persons or teams with grand ideas and prototypes, as well as investors seeking the next opportunity can be a part of this to contribute in writing the next chapter of Nigeria’s economic revolution, as this event presents the rare opportunity of partnering with the Presidency in driving the innovation agenda and setting the stage for the creation of what would become Africa’s future."
