The House of Representatives will host 161 students from 141 Nigerian universities to a 2-day interactive forum on the 9th and 10th of May 2016 at the National Assembly Complex in Abuja.
The forum is an initiative of Speaker Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara envisioned to promote active youth inclusiveness in the democratic process.
The event would feature seminars on a wide range of issues including “Role of Students in Improving the Quality of Education in Nigeria”, “Reviews of Laws Establishing Tertiary Institutions in Nigeria”, a debate on Youth Unemployment, among other activities.
With the serious fall in educational standards in Nigeria, we believe this is a welcome development and hope the results would impact greatly on the Nigerian Educational system as well as the capacity of Nigerian students.
