NETAD National Youth Forum, Abeokuta 2011

Memories of the 2011 Network for Talent Discovery's National Youth Forum which took place in Abeokuta, the Ogun State (South Western Nigeria) capital comes to mind.

The NETAD National Youth Forum is a gathering of youths aimed at creating an opportunity for youths to interact with one another and our role models, towards ensuring self discovery, talent development, effective leadership and patriotism among youths in the African region and beyond. Apart from the aforementioned, the forum is meant to create opportunities for young, uncelebrated prodigies to explore their talents and share their creative thoughts and to create in Africans, the consciousness of tailoring skills and potentials towards the progress of the continent.

The Abeokuta session of the NETAD NYF held on Tuesday, 22nd November, 2011 at Ogun State (South West Nigeria) had the theme 'Discovering the YOU in you'. The event had Prince Yomi Otukoya (Executive Director, Art Kingdom, South Africa), Chris Omotosho (Secretary, Association of Nigerian Authors, Ogun State), Olumayowa Okediran (Clerk, AIMUN-African Union Pan African Parliament), Akinola Solanke (Director, Building Our National Project - organisers of Nigeria's maiden and only National Flagday celebration) as guest speakers.
