Jerry Humphry Nii Okaikwei Okine who is now 28years old was a young high school graduate who followed in his great-grandfather (Hon. Joshua Attoh-Quarshie) and grandfather (Mr. Joseph Oblie Okine) entrepreneurial footsteps when he decided to open up his own business, JEPRIOX COMPANY LIMITED.
He started this company with two others Nana Osei Bonsu and Prince Nii Teiko Mettle. But along the toughest times these two people gave up and left but Jerry continued with his dreams. Inspired by his local business partner (Kelly Dela) and foreign partner (Victor S.K Schoeman) now Jerry has got big projects he is embarking on in Ghana.
His target is to create jobs which will employ over 300 to 500 youths just like him in his country. This he believes would curve down unemployment and reduce the crime rate in his country (Ghana)
He also aims at having his own airstrip and an International Airline which will fly to about 40 destinations which he disclosed that he will name his Airline after his late mum (Late Jessey Naa Odey Okine).
Jerry says that starting a business pushed him to grow up and become much more responsible.
He loves reading, researching, horse riding, swimming and listening to music. Above all he likes to research on places and stuffs where he can get more business opportunities.
He says he knows there are other youths just like him out there with such ideas. All he could tell them is they should have the YES I CAN, I WILL & I MUST spirit and they will get there just like he was inspired by Pastor Brian Amoateng of IYES in 2019.
