As the preparations for Nigeria’s 2019 general elections gather momentum, New Nigeria Youth Progressives Alliance has affirms that all is set for its 2018 Leadership Summit in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti state capital.
The New Nigeria Youth Progressives Alliance (NNYPA), speaking through its Communications Director, Emma Bricks Oko, during an interactive session with journalists in Abuja, said the organization is anchored on orientation and reorientation of the Nigerian youth through seminars, summits, symposiums and other possible means in a bid to build new Nigeria void of norms causing the untold hardship to the Nigeria citizens.
Emma said the maiden edition of the organization’s leadership summit will be power packed and will also prepare the Nigerian youths to occupying leadership positions as well as serve as a wakeup call to youths and remind them that the future is here adding that leadership has been the major challenge of the Nigerian government, if no major steps are taken to address this situation through the youth, Nigeria will continue in doom.
Bricks added that the organization chooses to hold its maiden edition in Ekiti state because all attention is shifted to the state in preparation for the state governorship election and a lot of youth will continue in the usual act of thuggery for politicians which results in killing of the youths stressing that with proper orientation through its leadership summit, no youth would preferred being killed over any amount of money being offered.
Oko noted that through NNYPA which has spread its tentacles to almost every part of Nigeria, Nigerian youths are more informed and would follow the part of good citizens and continue in the part that will see Nigeria in a better light both home and abroad, desisting from acts that puts Nigeria in the blacklist of the international community.

He however noted that after the 2018 leadership summit for its members which draws five (5) delegates from all states of the federation, Nigeria is surely on its way to overcoming lack of leadership qualities.
