Bolanle Austen-Peter's Speech At The Platform

In a world where people are flying to the moon, Nigerians are talking about Cassava becoming bread- Bolanle Austen-Peters

The founder of Terra Kulture and producer of the blockbuster movie 93days, Bolanle Austen-Peters was one of the speakers at the 2016 “The Platform” summit where she gave one of the most captivating speeches.




M
rs Bolanle spoke on the creative innovation leading to the development of our economy and believes that creativity is the most important tool Nigeria can adopt at this crucial moment. According to her, Nigerians need to stop thinking about mundane things like Cassava turning into bread while other countries are flying to the moon and other planets.

Easy for her to talk. Many Nigerians do not have wealthy fathers to bankroll their dreams or provide financial support and political clout to ensure their visions do no die. Many are still at the bottom of Malsberg theorectical base concerned with satisfying basic nessecities.

For a majority of Nigerians, the main worry is how to put good on d table. When they have done that, they can think about flying to the moon. #whomoonhelp

Thanks for talking like a Nigerian

Listened to her speech. It was disjointed and poorly delivered. No facts and figures indicating she did no research on the subject matter. All we got was a vain attempt at mimicking an "American accent".
Thank God for the excellent interventions by Segun Adeniyi, Sam Adeyemi and Peter Obi

BJ Bonji said...

I agree completely.
She was a disaster - off point in several instances

EXactly why the country is where it's when all we do is knock each other down. At least she's done so much for herself

A great blunder! If she knew how many years of rigorous research it coast FAO, FST etc to come up with making bread with cassava flour, he wouldn't despise such a breakthrough.Let's appreciate every little step we take.

@1.04 That is Nigeria for you. A person whose sudden rise cannot be separated from grants from her father is now lecturing about economy and growth. But we have a lifestyle blog to learn about the business advice of rich kids.

She is so retarded. In the country where people are thinking about reaching the moon, it is not everybody that is working on that. Some people are modifying bread as we know it as we speak. Someone there is modifying the recipe for using wheat so that we use less. Someone somewhere is thinking about how to change the screw driver. And, by the way, people cannot think about the moon when daily bread is a farce. Get off your high horse and smell the real stench around you. The country cannot get into lofty ideas when the basics are still absolute necessities.

Typical, comfortable Nigerians come up with cheap talks full of critiscism but just to display the little imparted knowledge they have either ways but nobody, I repeat nobody has/can come up with solution (s) on how to passby the looters and ensure the minimum of the State's wealth will put food in the stomach, shirt on the back and roof on the head of a common man on the streets !

she was challenging our creative knowledge.
must u be born rich to succeed .this is why some Nigerians will remain poor.

Toye Chivalry said...

I think she made some valid points;It's rude to say she spoke offpoint cos you disagree with her views. She was very on point and made one of the few points I remember at the tip of my fingers from that event, which is, we must develop our intellectual properties and see how to make good income from even abstract things. She shouldn't downplay the agric sector though...

Ok oooo

Dammy said...

Thank u. It amazes me the sort of comments I read from people

Dammy said...

Tell me about that o
The comments I read from some people makes me wonder if they listened objectively to the message she delivered.

The Key message is everyone needs to find his or her essence and not wait for government...

People let's wake up and find what we can do for our country and not what your country can do for you.

Bolanle , well done , speech well delivered. 👌🏾
