“While it may not be glaring to a lot of persons, revolutionary minds can tell that the creative industry in Port-Harcourt is experiencing a shift in the direction of change for the better. The idea of Oya Connet is an indisputably powerful contribution to the quickening of this emerging change that the industry is long over due for.
Rather than outline the challenges that have long limited the creative industry, the Oya Connet conference sort to proffer relevant solutions through a careful select of speakers who have be tested and have passed the standards that qualify them to instruct participants.
I appreciate the attempt to connect creatives from every part, to birth a hub. I am hopeful that its effect on the people will create that necessary spark the organizers projected while birthing the vision.”
