Introducing Competition Info for Competitive opportunities

Image
Belated New Year greetings to you!  it's been a busy number of months since the last post here. A lot that has time has been used in creating Competition Info (link)which I am pleased to introduce to you.

CompetitionInfo.com started out as a blog but has evolved into a searchable directory that you can use to find competitive opportunities such as grants, scholarships, competitions, funding opportunities provided by accelerators or incubators.

This year expect more updates to the Naijabranch galleries and games and here's hoping you have a great 2017!

New! Nigerian Quotes

Introducing a new addition to the Gallery section: Nigerian Quotes!  Here you'll find uplifting and interesting quotes made by Nigerians.

First off is the quote by the first and only Prime Minister of an Independent Nigeria - Alhaji Sir Abubuakar Tafawa Balewa:
"It is only on that basis of equality that peace can be maintained in our continent."
This is from the speech he delivered at the United Nations General Assembly on the 7th of October, 1960, less than a week after Nigeria became an independent country.

The full transcript of his speech can be found here.

Also in the gallery is a quote by Mrs Hafsat Abiola-Costello, the Founder & President of the Kudirat Initiative for Democracy (KIND).


"Peace comes from being able to contribute the best that we have, and all that we are, toward creating a world that supports everyone."
She also added
 "But it is also securing the space for others to contribute the best that they have and all that they are."…
