The world at their feet

ediaro.com in the news-as it is on The Nation newspaper.

They are three young Nigerians who have made impact on their generation. DAYO IBITOYE (recently graduated from Chemical Engineering, Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria) met them.

Abdulazeez Idiaro is popular for establishing one of the foremost and multifaceted educational website services in the country, ediaro.com. The Computer Science graduate of the University of Ilorin (UNILORIN)is making tremendous impact as an entrepreneur. He is a hardworking, innovative, intelligent, cool-headed and fun-loving young man.

Idiaro describes his vision for life as simply “employing ICT to change the world.”

He is inspired by doing what he loves and people (most especially Nigerians) appreciate him for it.

“I have a lot of people who call to appreciate my effort and initiative of the ediaro e-library which has a compilation of Nigerian and international undergraduate and post-graduate research works free for download; to foster further research and development. I love touching lives positively. I love standing for the right causes, even if am standing alone,” he said.

What are the challenges as a young entrepreneur?

“The challenge I have with ediaro.com is that Nigerians are very ignorant about computer and ICT. This is further compounded by the rate of cyber crime in the country. This is what spurred my interest to work on a book which is yet to be published. I titled it Safeguarding yourself from fraud and cybercrime in a cashless economy“.

Idiaro wants to be known as a religious, rich and noble man, even after his death.

He added: “I want to put a blueprint in this world, build up a business empire where I will promote businesses, ICT, touch lives, create employment, lift Nigeria’s image positively and make the world a better place.”

His message to Nigerian youths: “I want the youth to believe in themselves, think out of the box, set-up individual plans in life and move passionately towards achieving the objective. The beginning might be rough, I mean very rough, but, over time, they would get to their dream land if they do not relent.”

Ayodele Obajeun

Former CAMPUSLIFE correspondent Ayodele Obajeun is a graduate of Chemical Engineering from the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile Ife. He has proven his mettle many times as a man to beat in the literary world. In 2008, he beat 3,800 other participants from over 145 countries to be among the best eight at the World Bank International Youth Essay Competition.

From there, he set up a pet project “Tolerance Academy”. According to him, the academy provides young people with access to unconventional ethno-religious education, social integration internship as well as support to pass on the knowledge using existing knowledge transfer structures.

What inspires him most in life?

Ayo responds: “Unusual creations – madmen and death. When I see madmen, I get inspired by their vocalizations, I get inspired by their zeal and I get inspired by their unusual ways of engaging life. I believe there are many positives with mad men. When you have them as friends by studying them, you would realise what I mean. My final year project in school was dedicated to these men”.

Continuing, he said: “Death also inspires me; it has taught me how to live my daily life. It guides me to achieve my daily goals; this makes me live as if I would die tomorrow”.

Ayo who has dedicated his life to doing unusual things added: “I don’t want to end up as a footnote in history. I want to be in the chapters. I won’t do things that would make my head to be heavier than what my shoulders can carry”.

He surprised this correspondent when he was asked what he would want other youths to emulate from him. He answered: “Nothing. I hate to tell people to emulate me. If I should do that, I would be doing more harm than good. Everyone has been given a life to live. They should create their styles; how they choose to live their life is dependent wholly on them. An attempt to live like another person may land you in trouble; you would be a second class citizen, and you would end up in the pool, not among the few at the top of the pyramid because you have not created anything new with your life. Hesitate to be like someone, be unique,” he concluded.

 

Samuel Akinyemi

Popularly known as Psalm Ebube, gospel music crooner Samuel Akinyemi has proven his mettle as one of Nigeria’s fastest rising singers. He is a Mechanical Engineering graduate of the Osun State College of Technology, Esa Oke. According to him, music is what he was born to do as he started his musical career at 13.

Psalm Ebube came into the limelight with his hit single “Ebube” which received a massive airplay on local and international radio and television stations. Immediately the hit single was released, it became an anthem, chorused in every gospel gathering. It has recorded over 300,000 Internet downloads and counting. Psalm Ebube has worked with many big names in the industry such as the Midnight Crew, Bola Mogaji, Infinity, Kenny Kore, Lara Gorge Wole Oni, Mickky Mee, Akin Alabi, Adunni, Nill Oka (Ghana) and Maretous Arunda (Kenya).

Speaking to CAMPUSLIFE, Psalm describes his style as a blend of African and western contemporary music. He said his vision is to see his music transform lives within and outside Nigeria.

“When I see my songs minister to people, especially the youth, I am always glad. I believe it is my own little way of making the necessary impact this country needs to grow. I dream of a Nigeria where God’s praise will be made glorious through gospel music.”

Employing ICT to change the world

ediaro.com in the news-as it is on The Nation newspaper.

For those who are pessimistic about the possibility of a bright future for the education and ICT sectors, here is a cause to have a rethink. Nigerian undergraduates are no doubt taking the world by storm. One of such proud Nigerians is Abdulazeez Idiaro, a 400-Level Business Administration student of the University of Ilorin. MOHAMMED ALABI and ABDULRAHMAN ONABANJO (500-L Law) met the young man.

When Faruk Abdulmutallab soiled the good name of the nation recently, not many conceded to Nigerian youths being a violent lot. In fact, many dismissed the disgraceful act as an isolated case that must be treated on that level. This outcry may not be unconnected with the notion that the average Nigerian youth is hardworking, innovative, intelligent and cool-headed, if fun-loving. These describe the exploits of Abdulazeez Idiaro, popularly known as “Ediaro.com” on campus.

His voyage started some six years ago when he was confronted with the task of creating a formidable platform for local academic works to be published. Not only that, he was bewildered on the realisation that Nigeria and, by extension, students were tactically exempted from international scholarship and employment opportunities. To remove this barrier, he created what has metamorphosed into the internationally acclaimed Ediaro.com.

Hear him: “I learnt website designing by reading e-books, IT magazines and newsletters. Then I progressed to entrepreneurship books, marketing magazines and biographies of successful business moguls around the world. Based on the experienced I garnered over the years, I came out with the Ediaro.com concept.”

The concept, CAMPUSLIFE learnt, contains, among others, e-library, a resourceful platform made available free of charge for researchers, e-business section, social networking platform, information on available international students’ contests, employment opportunities and scholarships. He has since expanded its frontiers to include e-advertisement, e-payment consultancy, web-designing, talent hunting and e-learning, among others.

These did not come easy. He confessed that there were a lot of obstacles that initially got him disillusioned but for the encouragement from friends, siblings and, especially, his mother.

“The cost of procuring the materials of connecting to internationally acclaimed ICT companies, such as Microsoft, the challenges of carrying materials all around and having to combine my studies and all that seemed insurmountable,” he confessed.

Yet, the challenges turned out to be blessings in disguise. He said he is now better equipped to face the rigours ahead. In the passing, he would shower encomiums on the late Anthony Ogunlanoh (MD/CEO of Benant Services). Through him, he got a lot from Campaq, HP, IBM, Microsoft, 3com etc.

Abdulazeez says of his late mentor: “He was such a positively-minded international ICT professional.”

Over 50 universities have subscribed to Ediaro.com platform to help their academic staff and students publish their works and to get updated about the array of features offered by the computer whiz kid.

The launch of the project, last year, was attended by some of the best minds in the sector. Since then, the response of the academe at home and abroad has been most impressive. How then has he been able to cope with the financial implications of the capital-intensive project? The answer, expectedly, was that most of the financing has been from his pocket. Recently, however, especially premised on the global acceptance of the project, the e-advert section of the web has enjoyed considerable patronage from corporate institutions, public and private ventures. The astronomical rate with which the response came is not surprising as the cost is cheap.

What appears most interesting of all is the “People Empowering People” ideology of the project. The platform has, over the months, created avenues for students to showcase their talents, publish their academic works, study on diverse subjects and earn a token even from the comfort of their rooms.
