According to the organisers, the conference seeks to bring together individuals from different walks of life, gender and ethnicity to discuss issues ranging from gaining empowerment through a positive mindset to development issues and challenges in the country.

The confab will provide a forum for Nigerian youth from different demographic populations and other African communities to meet and share information on how to move the country forward through empowering the youth and the society at large; the importance of political and social entrepreneurship and the third world countries, thereby saving the next through political and social entrepreneurship.

It added that the conference would be a window for operators in the oil and gas companies, banking, media and private business sectors to share their personal, business and professional experiences; exchange ideas, encourage partnership relations and empower those in attendance, particularly the youth towards gaining knowledge, skills and relationship to make a difference in their communities through service, volunteerism and entrepreneurship.

The group maintained that it was through positive mindset change, active engagement in civic responsibility and commitment by the youths to their communities that the better Nigeria envisioned by President Muhammadu Buhari’s government emerge.

“It is focused on the issues of youths, men and women in leadership across various sectors including business, politics, education, healthcare, religion and public service and designed to train, equip and empower individuals to successfully lead, pursue entrepreneurship, build wealth and increase their access to executive leadership positions as well as help build their country with honesty and integrity.
