The Umbrella Business Quest is a radio programme that allows qualified contestants to pitch their business idea and it also provides opportunity for audience / listener participation through various platforms during the programme. The programme is aired every Thursday by 9.00 – 10.30pm on Comfort 95.1FM.
Umbrella Business Quest is one of the umbrella radio series proudly sponsored by the Peoples Democratic Party, Akwa Ibom State Chapter.
The programme which started one year ago has impacted positively on the lives of the citizens of Akwa Ibom State both indigenes and non-indegenes.
Umbrella Business Quest under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party has produced quite a number of self-made entrepreneurs within one year. It is worthy to note that a number of business icons have been recognised by adding value to their business through the business icon award and enumeration of N500,000. Some of the beneficiaries in the icon category are: Eyo Tailoring, The popular “Eka Udo”, Boldoz Books among others.
Additionally, we are glad to mention that, through the same programme, we’ve been able to empower 36 entrepreneurs and also supported 82 business icons within a stipulated period of one year.
Many thanks to the able Publicity Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, Akwa Ibom State, Comr. Ini Ememobong. He initiated the programme and made sure it’s stand the test of time.
The journey of a thousand miles began with a step. The programme will not be where it is today, without the crew members who worked tirelessly to make sure everything works accordingly. Today, we are proud to thank God for his direction and guidance through this journey and we say HAPPY 1ST ANNIVERSARY to UMBRELLA BUSINESS QUEST.
We are looking forward to achieving more positive milestone in the days ahead.
