Speaking on the Accessprenuer challenge initiative, Executive Director, Retail Banking, Access Bank Plc, Victor Etuokwu said the challenge was designed to promote entrepreneurial aspirations among Corp members.

“So far, the competition has proved to have a great impact on youth empowerment in the country as we received more entries during the current challenge. It is a way to support the young men and women who are just graduating from university to grow.
