The leadership question will continue to materialize in any conversation aimed at addressing the extant socio-economic disconnect in Nigeria. The annual Nigeria Symposium for Young and Emerging Leaders is one of such thought-provoking platforms where conversations are dialectically espoused with the aim of proffering actionable solutions.
We cannot overemphasize the subject of youth inclusiveness in all spheres of the political-economy, especially with the need to encourage their participation in policy-making process. Yet, there is a need for a dialogue on the role that young people will play in this new dispensation. How can young people begin to harness global opportunities that will engender national development for the collective?
Consequently, The Future Project hosted its fifth edition of the symposium on the 12th of July, 2019 which also further complemented the media advocacy on www.ymonitor.org, which is directed at active citizenship and responsible governance. The dialogue entailed a new direction tailored towards local relevance and global competitiveness for young and emerging leaders.
