Omotade Mack: LASU Student Who built fast Growing Agrobusiness with N100,000

Running a successful business in Nigeria is no walk in the park; it is not for the faint-hearted. The challenges are humongous, the roads to success littered with losses and struggles. However, against all odds, some are making things happen in the business sector.

Omotade Mack, a 300-level student of Mass Communication at the Lagos State University (LASU) is one of them. An unpleasant situation had brought Omotade to Lagos a few years ago. However, within a very brief period, she made “a lemonade out of the lemon” life threw at her.

Some days ago, I stumbled on the photos of a beautiful, gorgeous young lady, Omotade, smiling gleefully as she stands in front of a huge truck loaded with thousands of tubers of yams on the Facebook page of Jack Obinyan, a former media aide to Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo state.

Omotade was in Benue state to purchase the yams. It’s not every day you come by the photos of a young damsel dealing in the “unfancy” business of selling yams at such a large scale, and doing so with ease, passion and a touch of millennial fanciness.

So, what I saw piqued my interest immediately and I decided to visit her wall. I was blessed with more beautiful pictures and a video of Omotade as she conducts her business in Benue. “I’m on River Benue. I’m scared and I’m not scared,” she said amid a bout of laughter on Facebook live as she took a boat on the popular river.

She said about the business trip to Benue on Facebook:“The whole transaction went well, my goods are on the way to the receiving market. For many who have been asking if we are insured, I’m here to also announce that all of our goods are fully insured.

“This smile of mine will not reveal the tired part of me..”
Amidst the stories of gloom and doom that have filled up Nigeria’s social and traditional media spaces, Omotade’s inspiring story deserves to be told. So, I got in touch with her via Facebook messenger and she obliged me almost immediately.Omotade was born and raised in Akure, Ondo state. Raised in a godly home and surrounded by doers, she grew up with an independent mindset and had a burning desire to work and make money at a very early age.


Years after, that early stage burn trying desire led to the founding of Ample Ace Ltd.Ample Ace Ltd, also called A2, is a privately owned agricultural company that specializes in the trade of agro commodities and explores other agricultural value chains such as storage, exportation, and so on.A2 is registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC).
