    Hey Team Connect Nigeria,

    Just stumbled onto this post now and what caught my attention was the name of the author ‘ Press Release’

    While my comment is a bit off-topic I’d like to know the requirements to publish a press release on your site.

    Thank you. Looking forward to your reply.


  • It is interesting to see your grant project. It shall go a long way in reversing our shattered economy. What surprised me is; why do you limit possible beneficiaries within the age brackets of 20-45 or something like that. Does it mean that productivity has age limit?
