Nigeria Dialogue holds a town hall meeting featuring Funmi Iyanda, Chude Jideonwo, Humphrey Hawksley and Ikenna Azuike titled: “The new generation of leadership in Nigeria.”
The dialogue will be held on July 12, 2014 at The Cruciform Building, Lecture Theatre 1, University College London, Gower Street London, WC1E 6BT between 11am and 4pm.
“With statistics revealing that 70 per cent of the Nigerian population is below 35 years old and almost half of the entire population between 0-14 years old, the need to start the discussion about finding new leaders for our country Nigeria starts now,” said Nigeria Dialogue’s Chief Operations Officer, Bankole Eniola.
At the event, The Future Africa Awards and Summit Co-founder, Chude Jideonwo, will read excerpts of his recently released and critically acclaimed book: “Are We The Turning Point Generation?”
A panel discussion involving notable personalities like Funmi Iyanda, an award-winning broadcaster, journalist, columnist and blogger; Humphrey Hawksley; an experienced and notable foreign journalist working for the BBC; Ikenna Azuike, creator of What’s Up Africa and Co-founder of Strawberry Earth, will take questions from members of the audience and a keynote address by a guest speaker are also activities lined up for the event.
Speaking about the decision behind organising the Town Hall meeting, Eniola said: “It is every Nigerian’s responsibility to start a process of finding, nurturing and empowering new leaders to bring Nigeria to its rightful position in the world.”
The free town hall event is open to members of the general public in central London and will be anchored by Kayode Ogundamisi.
