The Nigerian Constitution through the Lens of Youths: Matters Arising

Date: June 15, 2018

Time: 9am

Venue: Law Theatre, Imo State University


Conference Overview

Earlier this year, our Centre brought together a group of 100 youths from across Nigeria to study the Nigerian constitution. They did and have raised questions. The aim of this conference, therefore, is to have competent authorities answer these questions, educate more youths on their constitutional rights and responsibilities while providing an opportunity for more youths to bring their own insights to the ongoing constitutional discourse in the country. This is an opportunity no one has offered to our youths as if their views do not matter. At the end of the conference, we shall produce a booklet to be submitted to the Federal Government and other relevant agencies and made available to the Nigerian youths.

Within the last 4 years, our programs have trained over ten thousand youths across 21 States of Nigeria in leadership, entrepreneurship and ethics. Our long-term structured nurturing programs are helping hundreds of youths including aspiring political, media, religious, business and judicial leaders build the capacities, competencies and character to become successful and bring positive change to Africa. We have inspired and power 38 social impact projects, which have reached additional 11107 people across Nigeria especially children, women and youths.
