Diamond Bank has shown support for the Federal Government’s entrepreneurship development programme tagged, “Aso Villa Demo Day.”

The event, intended to encourage economic diversification and celebrate creativity and innovation by young Nigerians, took place when Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg, visited President Muhammadu Buhari at the State House in Abuja recently.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo had said the Federal Government was discussing the possibility of a partnership with Facebook in a bid to improve Internet connectivity in Africa and expressed the government’s resolve to anchor the country’s development on energy, innovation and creativity of the youths.

Three of the 30 startup businesses earlier shortlisted in Lagos, Port-Harcourt and Abuja were eventually selected and given a cash prize of N3m each.
