About the Founders

Akin Akinboro and Mobolaji Sokunbi are the Co-Founders of The 234 Project. They first met in the late 1990s at a time when each person was much involved in the African Students Association (ASA) at their respective universities. In 2015, they got together and launched The 234 Project as a platform to promote the accomplishments of Nigerians globally and as an agency with the precise purpose to empower a young generation of Nigerians. We are committed to ensuring that Nigerian youths are not victims of a socio-economic limitations but are discovered and mentored so that they can be agents of change themselves.

Empowering Youth, Preserving Culture
