Addressing Journalists yesterday in Abuja, the project Coordinator of Brands Carnival Project Limited, Adegboyega Ojuolape said that the event which would hold in October this year in Abuja, would also create a national collaboration system for the promotion of Nigerian brands as well as a platform for national agenda setting for Made in Nigeria and National recognition for best practices in social investment and entrepreneurship development.
