2016 Innovention Series
As oil fortunes dwindle, Nigeria, like many African countries have come to the realization that running a mono-economy is the highest form of insanity. Pius Adesanmi in a provoking epiphany unveils the real capital that can drive real innovation – the youth.
His recurring phrase,“Iyalaya anybody” is a native Nigerian language that captures the can-do spirit of today’s African youth that is fearless in the face of unnerving circumstances and able to breed new ideas while challenging the status quo. This new spirit is what is driving progress across the world and emerging economies have no choice but embrace it.
