On November 26, 2015, over 300 final year medical students of the College of Medicine, University of Lagos, Idi-Araba, Lagos, Nigeria benefitted from Tomeb Foundation’s one-day empowerment programme with the theme: Achieving Goals: A Dignified Successful Future is Possible. The programme was supported by the giant oil company ExxonMobil, who sponsored the purchase and distribution of 300 copies of a book “The Personal Business Plan: A Blueprint for Running Your Life” authored by Stephen Bruyant Langer, to the participants.

The programme was put together in fulfilment of one of our objectives of developing youths through various forms of education and was borne out of a deep concern for how students transit from higher education to working life. It was meant to assist students, who are leaders of tomorrow, prepare themselves for the future and for life after school, and to realise their potentials as change agents for a new Nigeria. The focus of discussion was on self knowledge, essence and necessary ingredients to setting and achieving goals and tips for dealing with impediments to realisation of personal goals.

The one-day event featured three distinguished Nigerians who delivered presentations on the sub-themes of the day. The Country Managing Director of Accenture, Niyi Yusuf, flagged off the presentations with the “Art and Science of Self Knowledge”; Dr (Mrs) Ibipo Abdurraheem-Salami of the Lagos University Teaching Hospital spoke about “Principles and Practice of Goal Setting and Achievement” while the founder of Tomeb Foundation, Tunde Popoola, rounded up the day with his presentation on “Dealing With Procrastination”.

The well-attended programme was graced by the Provost of the College of Medicine, Professor Folasade Ogunsola, the college secretary, Mr. Oladejo Azeez, and other top management of the institution, including Professor Fatimah Abdulkareem of the department of Anatomic and Molecular Pathology.
