      I’ve never heard of Toyosi or Rise networks before, thanks for this platform. We need more youth entrepreneurs like her in Nigeria. Toyosi, you have the gut, the drive, & the heart. Pls keep it up. God shall always strengthen you as you continue to be a blessing to more Nigerian youths.

      Fantastic initiative, Toyosi is d kind of pple we need to actually make our youth a promising generation. I want to believe that the like of toyosi are common in our country but what we need is d right pple and leaders to actually pump out d creativity in our youth out. The level of corruption in our land today is d main thing that has kill d potential of our youth. Todays leaders should give our youth the opportunity to rise to their maximum potentials so that we can take our destinies in our hands. Toyosi, good job, good thinking, the sky is ur lumit, that is if their is a limit in the sky. Fly on.

      This is quite an inspirational piece especially for young ladies like myself who have always believed in doing something of their own but lack the requisite idea on how to go about it. Kudos Toyosi, hope to work with you on some viable ideas in the future.

      I share your fear but you forget that you are already a living example of the solution to that fear. If more young people see this interview and others on ndani, that fear could vanish if they can catch the fire in your words. I wish you the best of the most that life has to offer!

      Gtbank is beginning to set the pace for other banks to follow, Just as we now in the era of utilizing technology, Gtbank has been in the front burner.

      I have met with this young CEO, Toyosi Arekele, She is full of energy at what she does, her youth transformational goals are clearly and purely objective
