As part of plans to commemorate the United Nations International Youth Day 2014, RISE NETWORKS, an organisation known for building the capacity of the younger generation, will assemble notable personalities from different sectors of the society to the main auditorium of the University of Lagos on August 27 by 10am.

The event, which is meant to provide an opportunity for the youths to be empowered with the required tips to overcome challenges that they encounter in their day-to-day dealings, has a lineup of activities to enrich participants.

The activities include art and photo exhibition, satirical stage play by the Crown Troupe of Africa, inter-generational dialogue on topical issues such as entrepreneurship, education, security and quality of governance, among others.

Among the dignitaries expected to attend the event are governors of Cross River, Edo and Delta states; Mrs. Folorunsho Alakija, MD/CEO Famfa Oil & Rose of Sharon Group; minister of labour and productivity, Emeka Wogu; executive director, Campaign for Democracy, Dr. Joe Odumakin; leading Nollywood actress, Kate Henshaw; and chairman of JayKay Pharmacy limited, Mr. Jimi Agbaje.

Commenting on the programme, Toyosi Akerele, founder/CEO, RISE GROUP, said the objective of the programme is to provide an avenue for young people to evaluate the effect of the policies made by those in position of authority.

“The 2014 United Nations International Youth Day Event in Nigeria is organsed by Rise Networks to critically analyse the challenges faced by Nigeria’s youth and speak to the current realities that affect their mental state of wellbeing,” she said.

“It is important for us as Nigerian Youths to reflect on the Nigerian society and see if the policies implemented by our public office holders have in any way helped us to overcome our everyday challenges.

“The day has been set aside to encourage both member, states and the general public to understand the needs of young people, to implement policies to help them overcome the challenges they face, and to help young people into the decision-making process.”
