Kids! Monopoly tour bus is coming to your school

With the economy of Nigeria today and the financial changes we are experiencing, the need to educate and inform on how investment and finance works is a very important issue. The adults are more exposed to this as we come across it in our daily activities but the kids are left behind. To bridge this gap, Bestman games is bringing Monopoly to schools.
Monopoly is a board game played by moving around the gameboard to buy or trade properties. It develops properties with houses and hotels and collects rent from their opponents. The goal being to drive them into bankruptcy teaches the lesson of finance and investments. 

With the common mission of educating and promoting personal finance literacy, Lamudi Nigeria is partnering with Bestman Games Limited- the African distributor for new 'local' editions of Monopoly. As part of its year-end event, Bestman games will be taking a school providing Monopoly boards which will feature Lamudi Nigeria.

Its city of Lagos edition provides players with an exceptional tour of the city featuring historical monuments and landmarks, famous streets, popular neighborhoods, key buildings and leading brands spread across Lagos metropolis.

“This is another exciting opportunity for Lamudi Nigeria to again support educating people including teenagers on the importance of finance and investments.” Obi Ejimofo, Managing Director Lamudi Nigeria, commented on the new partnership. 

Mr. Yemi Adedoyin, head of Special Projects at Bestman Games Limited outlined the company’s annual plans. He said: “We are about to hold the finale of the  Monopoly Tournament which has attracted a lot of people across Lagos. Our next event will be the Monopoly Bus Tour .
