Welcome Advancement 5.0: Economic Dialogue – Ordinary People Building an Extraordinary Nigeria

As Nigeria clocks 57 on the 1 st of October 2017, Nigerians; especially the youth really need to question the status quo.

Is the news about the recession not frightening? Is the thought of a perceived coming hardship and epileptic delivery of crucial services to citizens not disturbing? Yes, they are.

However, the state of any place is the validity of its people and the conscious effort to ensure that there is a drastic progress in the country greatly lies on its citizens. This and much more necessary futuristic thoughts is why the largest Independence day conference is a compulsory ritual.

The success of the past four (4) editions from 2013 – Advancement 1.0 till the last, 4.0, has reached well over 9,500 youths. We have within this period recorded success stories, grass root awareness, kid and youth inclusion in governance, nation-building and a whole lot of morale building.

The organisers have sustained and arrived at a point where we bring role models and invite political stakeholders and government officials for reasonable dialogue. All these are part of the solution-driven initiative.

Having seen the records and reports of these rising developments, we are more convinced of the need to do more, to engage more youths and set them on the track needed in truly making Nigeria a better place to live. This is a major drive for Advancement 5.0 which is the 2017 Edition of this movement.

The theme for this year’s event isEconomic Dialogue –Ordinary People Building an Extraordinary Nigeria”.

This year’s edition is unique the same event go live by 9:00 AM, October 2nd, 2017 in 3 different cities of the country respectively; Abuja – Civic Innovation Lab: No 50 Ademola Adetokunbo Crescent, Wuse 2 Abuja Osas

The huge vision to birth a new Nigeria on the foundations of an intellectual revolution in Technology, Business, Politics, National Security and Social Development, continues as it encapsulates the wholesome need of a Nigerian youth.

The Advancement which has been known to give a platform for dialogue between diverse age groups, intellectual discussions beefed up by keynote and panel session speakers will not fail to deliver more than expected at this year’s conference.

In a chat with the Curator of  Advancement, Olusola Amusan, he expressed hope for a massive turnout for Advancement 5.0. “Economic Dialogue is a strategic response to the challenge of our generation, a challenge that borders on direction”, he said.

There is no doubt that “The Advancement” will continue to impact the youths for years to come as Advancement 5.0 would leave an indelible impact on the gross development of Nigeria.
