Woman bags contract to fry “akara” for NAFEST tourists

Mr Olusegun Runsewe, Director-General, National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC), on Tuesday, rewarded Mrs Florence Robinson’s hard work, as she bagged contract to fry “akara” for NAFEST tourists.

Runsewe declared the reward during the National Festival of Arts and Culture Roundtable on Entrepreneurship, held at the Oba Akenzua Cultural Centre, Benin City, Edo state.

 He said that Robinson deserved to be recognised and compensated for her high sense of responsibility, hard work and remarkable achievements, having worked as a bean cake seller for years.

 According to him, the recognition given to Robinson should encourage Nigerians to be hardworking and responsible, even when efforts were being made by the Federal Government to boost the economy.

“I’m overwhelmed when this woman narrated her experience in life; she has single-handedly trained two of her children in the university as a bean cake seller.
