The Fixing Nigeria Group, set to host the second edition of its national youth conference, titled #FixingNigeria 2.0, invites all political parties to pitch at the forth coming event slated for the 29th of May, 2018 at the Nicon Luxury Abuja.
Ahead of the 2019 general elections, youth leaders across the country will, on Democracy Day 2018, gather, both offline and online, at the heart of the Nation’s Capital, to brainstorm on best strategies for effective and active participation in politics and to discuss on the imperatives of good governance as a major Key Performance Index for the next leadership.
In a bid to drive more active youth participation in politics, the group requests the attendance and participation of all interested political parties in Nigeria at the conference’s “Political Market Square” plenary session: a panel in which representatives of the various political parties would share with Nigerian youth leaders, their policies and ideologies towards fixing Nigeria.
According to the National Press Secretary, Sam Arua, there would be a political party exhibition, with booths for each party, at which interested youths may register to the political parties of their choice, or gain further information from the parties they seek to join.
The Fixing Nigeria Youth Conference is organized by the Ernest & Ibrahim foundation, a foundation created out of a burning desire to support and propagate efforts in advocacy, education, capacity building and welfare across the countries in Africa and developing nations in the globe, with a primary focus on the Nigerian youth.
The Maiden edition of the Ernest and Ibrahim Foundation’s Youth in Politics advocacy campaign was launched last year in its first Conference tagged #FixingNigeria 1.0, on the 29th of May 2017, marking the 18th Democracy day in Nigeria. The Conference recorded huge numbers of youth leaders in attendance across Nigeria, with a major call to action for active citizenship, nation building, and patriotism, following which these hundreds of youths from across the nations went back to the grassroot with a renewed hope and fire for the future of our dear great nation.
Also, speaking to pressmen in Abuja, Mr Arua directed that interested parties write to the foundation via its website contact-us page (ErnestA
Only registered parties will have their representatives enlisted as panelists for the conference.
