His words, “As Nigeria struggles to rebuild her economy and address the myriads of sociopolitical challenges, it is very important to pay attention to building the successor generation.

“No efforts should be spared in building the skills and character of our youth for they are the ones to catalyze, energize  and actualize the change that we all clamor for in the country.

“UAC is convinced that true change can only come to Nigeria if the youth who have the largest population, high energy and immense potential are groomed, inspired and empowered to play critical role as leaders and drivers of the future we all hope for.

He continued, : “It is in view of this that the United Action for Change (UAC) in collaboration with the National Orientation Agency (NOA) and the Small and Medium Scale Enterprises Development Agency of Nigeria (SMEDAN) is organizing the second addition of the UAC Leadership Training.

The Leadership Academy will feature capacity building clinics, mentoring sessions and entrepreneurial support initiatives to be handled by experts and accomplished Nigerians who are worthy of emulation.
