Recession forced me into making Ankara ties — UNILAG student

Buraimoh Kikiope, a 200l Law student, University of Lagos , UNILAG has said that the current economic situation drove him into making corporate ties with Ankara fabrics for clients both home and abroad.

Speaking to Quadlife,   Kikiope said it was high time Nigerian youths became creative rather than continuously languish in despair and alter helplessness.


His words, “I am known as   EkAfricanclassic. What inspired me into creating ties with Ankara is the present situation of joblessness among the youths of Nigeria. I feel it is time we the youths become creative and come up with ideas. “Okikiope said the success story of business mogul, Aliko Dangote made him to task himself with business ideas. In the process, he found love in the use of fabrics to make fancy ties. “ I had started reading of Dangote and this spurned me to believe that I can make a difference with my ideas;

“I could make 50 ties in the middle of the night. I am aiming  to be the number one distributor of Ankara ties in the continent,”

The young undergraduate said since October he started showcasing his products, he has garnered patronage inside and outside the shores of Nigeria through his use of the social media platform such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram etc.
