Nigeria is undoubtably one nation whose strength is in her youth and all over the world, the impact of the Nigerian youth is felt and being harnessed for development of Nations. It is with this awareness that the Emerging leaders Conference was designed especially to provide more capacity for Nigeria’s emerging youth influencers and help them multiply their influence in other youth for a more empowered economy.
